Ashland's hula school, Ka Pi'o O Ke Anuenue, directed by kumu (master teacher) Andrea Luchese, presents "Evening of Aloha" to celebrate the legacy of Kumu Raylene Ha'alelea Kawaiae'a, who passed away last year.

Dancers will perform kahiko-style hula, choreographed by Kawaiae'a, and more contemporary 'auana dances, choreographed by Kawaiae'a and Luchese and accompanied by the Ashland Hawaiian band Ha'ena.

The show will be at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2, at the Unitarian Fellowship, 87 Fourth St., Ashland. Doors open at 6 p.m. The evening will open with a silent auction and close with a drawing for a cash prize. Refreshments, baked goods, handmade leis and hair flowers will be available for purchase.

Tickets are available for a suggested donation of $5 to $10 at Houston's Custom Framing and Fine Art, 270 E. Main St., Ashland, or at the door. Proceeds will benefit The Rose Circle, a local nonprofit, and go toward the school's trip in March to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, where students will perform at a memorial dedication for Kawaiae'a.
