Back in the day men didn't get in the Mai Kai without a jacket. The dress code today is considerably more relaxed. That more casual dress code doesn't mean you can't pull out your best aloha wear and really do up the evening! And you know what would really take your outfit over the top?

An Orchid Lei!

Andy found this great place in Hawaii that has beautiful leis and they have great reviews. And they have great prices.

So..... order yourself a Lei. Order one for your date or partner or spouse. We have two styles to choose from!

Click Here to order your lei today

Classic Orchid lei, purple and white orchids - $20 and will be available for pickup on Friday.



He'e Lei, red He'e berries and orange flowers in a classic double twist - $30 and will be available for pick up on Friday.



Did I mention we are ordering these from Hawaii? And that if you want one you shouldn't wait too long to place your order?

What is more Caribbean than pirates? Conch. Conch fritters, conch bisque, and conch shells. And Poptiki of Colorado took the humble conch and turned it into a most awesome event mug suitable for the first ever Ohana: Luau by the Sea.

This little bit of ceramic magnificence holds a bit more than 12 ounces of beverage, you could probably get 16 ounces in there if you have a really steady hand.

Each hand glazed mug will include a special recipe (it's the same recipe for all of them, you don't have to collect the whole set or anything).

Quantities are limited so act now! Click here to order your bundle. The bundle is one event ticket ($85) and one mug($50).

Mugs will be available for pickup at the event check-in table.

There will also be a special one-off mug available in the Silent Auction. More on that later.

(Psstt... if you already bought your tickets and just need to purchase a mug, send me an email and I'll get you hooked up.)

And, of course, Tickets. And what they include....

For only $85 per person you get all of this great stuff:

The Kick-Off Party at the Kreepy-Tiki Lounge featuring classic and tiki cocktails, live music and more!
Friday pool-side entertainment including a carving demonstration by local artist De Tiki, Ukulele Lessons by Tony Baloney, and a presentation on Nautical Tiki from our very own tiki historian Mike Skinner.
A special evening at the World Famous Mai Kai Polynesian Restaurant and Lounge. Live music for Happy Hour, the world's longest running Polynesian review by the world-famous Mai Kai Polynesian Islanders Review, and then even more fun after dinner in the gardens.

Saturday Pool-side entertainment, The Ohana Marketplace including the Ohana Silent Auction and Gift shop for your shopping pleasure, and much more that we will share later.
Then Saturday night.... the Ohana Luau! Dinner and dancing with live entertainment including Stolen Idols, Skinny Jimmy Stingray, South Florida Bombshell Medusirena the Fire Eating Mermaid, and 9th Wave! And we mean dinner. And dancing. It's not just a cool sounding phrase that hearkens back to the past, we mean you get dinner to eat and you can dance if you want to, but we won't leave your friends behind (free ear-worms every Friday!)

Wanna learn to play the Ukulele?

Tony Baloney is going to teach Ukulele 101 poolside at Ohana on Friday afternoon. Bring your uke along and he'll get you playing in no time. If you don't have a uke, he'll have some spares. If you want to buy a uke he can tell you what and where and how much.

Keep an eye out and an ear open because Tony is also going to work up a Uke-Jam on Saturday at something-thirty in the afternoon. Songs for the beginners and songs for the professionals both.

It's going to be fun!

Just a reminder.... there are NO same-day ticket sales. Tickets must be purchased in advance. There is one ticket for the entire weekend of fun. Ticket sales are going to close on September 21 because we have to give the catering team a final headcount.

You have five more weeks to buy your tickets, but remember you only have five more weeks to buy a ticket.

Here is another addition to the Ohana Schedule: The Rum Room!

On Friday starting at 12:00 Noon the "Rum Room" will open it's doors. We are still trying to come up with a better name for it so if you have any suggestions? I'll buy a drink for the person who suggests the best name.

Anyway...

The Rum Room! Our generous Sponsors will host a showcase of their products where you can talk face to face with the brands and enjoy samples and tastings of their many fine products.

In the same room and also Rum!

Think you already know a thing or two about Rum? The team from the Miami Rum Festival will be hosting their World-Famous Rum Challenge. The Rum Challenge sounds easy enough... a short presentation on how to taste rums, some information about how the different soils and climates of the different rum producing countries affects the rums, and then you are presented with a selection of rums and you have to 'pin the rum on the Island.' Winners get bragging rights and everyone gets to learn something and taste some rum so not really any losers.

The Rum Room and the Miami Rum Fest Challenge are both included as part of your event ticket.

Click here to learn more about Miami Rum Fest:
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Miami-Rum-Festival/124765660891042?fref=ts&ref=br_tf

And click here to purchase your tickets to the first ever Ohana: Luau by the Sea!
http://fraternalorderofmoai.org/shop/index.php…

I have to include the small print stuff.... Rum room has rum in it (duh) so you have to be 21 years old. We will be checking ID's in order to keep all the official peoples happy.

Here is the legal mubo jumbo I found.
Your FOM lawyers will be able to tell if this applies to you or not.

Sales of advertising space. A national association of law enforcement officials publishes a monthly journal that contains articles and other editorial material of professional interest to its members. The journal is distributed without charge, mainly to the organization's members.
The organization sells advertising space in the journal either for conventional advertising or to merely identify the purchaser without a commercial message. Some of the noncommercial advertising identifies the purchaser in a separate space, and some consists of listings of 60 or more purchasers per page. A business firm identified in a separate space is further identified in an Index of Advertisers.
The organization solicits advertising by personal contacts. Advertising from large firms is solicited by contacting their chief executive officer or community relations officer rather than their advertising manager. The organization also solicits advertising in form letters appealing for corporate and personal contributions.
An exempt organization's sale of advertising placed for the purchaser's commercial benefit is a commercial activity. Goodwill derived by the purchaser from being identified as a patron of the organization is usually considered a form of commercial benefit. Therefore, advertising in an exempt organization's publication is generally presumed to be placed for the purchaser's commercial benefit, even if it has no commercial message. However, this presumption is not conclusive if the purchaser's patronage would be difficult to justify commercially in view of the facts and circumstances. In that case, other factors should also be considered in determining whether a commercial benefit can be expected. Those other factors include:
The normal manner in which the publication is circulated;

The territorial scope of the circulation;

The extent to which its readers, promoters, or the like could reasonably be expected to further, either directly or indirectly, the commercial interest of the advertisers;

The eligibility of the publishing organization to receive tax-deductible contributions; and

The commercial or noncommercial methods used to solicit the advertisers.

In this situation, the purchaser of a separate advertising space without a commercial message can nevertheless expect a commercial benefit from the goodwill derived from being identified in that manner as a patron of the organization. However, the purchaser of a listing cannot expect more than an inconsequential benefit. Therefore, the sale of separate spaces, but not the listings, is an unrelated trade or business.

Tikiskip, thank you for your concern. The tax code in the United States is quite complex so we spend a lot of time reading about it as we plan charitable events. IRS Publication 598, which you are quoting from, is certainly an exciting document that we have read more than once when working with potential donors. Our lawyers have advised us that sponsorships are permissible.

Oh dam don't read that!
That thing makes it sound like you can't throw these types of events as a 501 c at all.
Depending who interprets it, just got to hope the guy who looks at it see it your way.
That and make sure your name is not one of the eight on the 990 EZ.

Duly noted, but I'm not losing any sleep over it.

This ain't our first rodeo.
