Helping Our Westside, also known as HOW, will go Hawaiian with a luau-themed dinner and dance on Saturday, Aug. 23.

The event, at Bonaventure Hall, 505 M St., will be from 6 to 11:30 p.m. and feature dinner, silent auction, donation drawing and music by D.J. Bear.

Tickets are $25 each and all proceeds are donated directly to our community to serve the needs of local youth. HOW helps the community in many ways and annually purchases Christmas gifts for children of need and donates to the Westside Food Pantry, Kids Helping Kids, Advancement Via Individual Determination also known as AVID, Apricot Fiesta, Every Student Succeeding program and also offers scholarships to graduating seniors and provides school supplies to hundreds of students in Patterson.

HOW provides donations in support of the “Every Fifteen Minutes” program, Sober Grad Night, and the Patterson Library. Additionally, HOW provides funds for specific needs of young people, including sending a child to diabetes camp, purchasing assistive technological equipment for a child with special needs, assisting a Boy Scout with funds required to complete his youth-focused Eagle Scout project, buying school clothes and shoes for a family who had been enduring financial struggle, eyeglasses for an elementary student and gas/food for families who must travel for the long-term medical care of a child.

HOW consists of a small group of dedicated citizens who are thankful for the community support in their efforts to make a difference in the lives of young people.

New members are welcome.
