Another year, another Punahou Carnival shift. Sign up and join your classmates for some great fun!
It’s a big job. As cited in the Spring 2011 issue of the Punahou Bulletin, Punahou’s Director of Food Services Marcia Barrett ’74 Wright calculated that 2011 Carnivalgoers ate a record-breaking number of malasadas: nearly 172,000. This topped 2010’s record by 20,000! Talk about dough on your hands.
(For the record, this was in addition to the 34,000 hamburgers, 6,600 chicken plates, 4,680 Hawaiian plates, 10,200 gyros, 5,000 taco salads, 12,500 ears of corn, and 2,100 gallons of Portuguese bean soup that were consumed at the 2011 Carnival.)
If the above number is true, then our class made 10,750 of the famous Carnival malasadas during our three hour shift. With numbers like that, you know that it will take many hands to make light work. Will you join us? Here’s when you’re needed:
