The Friends of the Loleta Meat Market are holding a luau on Saturday at the Loleta Fireman's Pavilion beginning at 5:30 p.m., with dinner being served until 8:30 p.m. The event will have free live music along with beer and wine for $3. Coffee and non-alcoholic beverages will also be available throughout the evening festivities. Dinner tickets are $15 for deep pit pulled pork, rice, assorted salads, fruit, and bread with butter.

The event has been organized to help raise funds to offset moving and renovation expenses. Loleta Meat Market is planning to move into the Gilded Rose located just up the street in Loleta.

"The community has been awesome with their donations and most of all emotional support," Loleta Meat Market co-owner Pixie Setterlund said. "I have never seen a community get together like this. It is truly amazing."

Setterlund said business has gone up 25 percent since January.

"We are all very humbled by the community outpouring," she said.

There will be Dutch and silent auctions with live music provided by 'The Lost Coasters' performing authentic Hawaiian music. Dancing to the Rooster McClintock Band will heat up the floors after dinner ends at 8:30 p.m.
