Luau at Canfield Place

Luau at Canfield Place

At Canfield Place, we are all about hosting incredible events that fulfill our mission of living Five Star Fun every day! Whether it’s our Mother’s Day Tea or annual luau we recently celebrated in August, Canfield pulls out all the stops to provide the best possible experience for residents and their family members.

Fall is here and Canfield Place sent summer off in Five Star Fun style with an immersive luau experience. On Friday, August 23rd Canfield Place residents, family members, and friends attended our annual luau. Our dining room was transformed into an authentic Hawaiian experience with bright colors and stunning flowers. Our chef put on an incredible spread whose menu included kalua pork, shrimp fried rice, macaroni salad, and Hawaiian Dessert Dream Cups. The tables in our dining room were bursting with color as residents were greeted with leis and a piña colada to start the event off right.

“I’ve been coming every year to the luau with my mom, the whole staff works incredibly hard to deliver a wonderful experience for residents and family members.” – Linda Coe

All of the Canfield Place staff dressed in Hawaiian shirts to add to the ambiance. We invited another local senior living community, which provided an opportunity for our residents to reconnect with friends. To top off the event, local hula dancers of Beaverton named Hula Halau ‘Ohana Holo’oko’a put on an incredible performance! Our dining room was transformed into a theater as the dancers showcased different types of dance from the islands with a wide range of age groups. Residents couldn’t help but ooh and ahh over their elaborate costumes. It truly felt as if we had been transported to the Big Island!

“It was truly a lovely lunch and the entertainment was incredible! The dancers set the tone for the luau and I enjoyed seeing all the staff dress up for the occasion.” – Lucille Sahlin

The special events at Canfield Place are more than just fun evenings. They offer our residents a chance to invite friends and family to their home and create lasting memories with them. We’d love for you to join us at our next event! Contact Canfield Place today to see what Five Star Fun looks like in retirement!
