The 2006 7th Annual CARES Luau will take place on Saturday, June 17th, from 6-10. It will feature fabulous food, tropical drinks, live and silent auctions and the exotic stylings of San Francisco-based APE, "The World's Greatest Tiki Band," featuring a tiki carving performance by "Crazy Al" Evans, whose work will be auctioned off at the evening's end. The event will take place behind the CARES building at 1500 21st Street in Sacramento. Tickets are $75. For more info call 916-914-6363.
The Luau is a yearly fundraising effort for the nonprofit CARES, an HIV/AIDS regional healthcare clinic, pharmacy and social services entity located in Sacramento. CARES was established in 1989 through a partnership of Sacramento County and the area's four major hospital systems, led by the University of California at Davis Med Center.
Oh, also appearing with APE on June 17 will be Lawrence "Larry D" Duplechan, from LA, a silver throated singer and piece of eye candy who bills himself as "Note Just Another Black, Gay, Rock-and-Roll Ukulele Player."
People wanting tickets to the event should call CARES directly at 916-914-6363
