I attended the dedication of the PCC as a teen and then worked at the restaurant
the next year while attending CCH. It is wonderful to see the success from such
an quiet beginning. It continues to fulfill the vision that brought it into
being. Just ask any of the students who have benefited from being employed
there thru the years.
Shelama, "$296,000 yearly salary...exempt from federal taxes"???You're joking, right? You made up those numbers, why, exactly? To
And I'm still a C.C.H. Seasider.
Lighten up, Shelama. IT IS a “living museum and an
education-oriented charity that employs students who work at the center to pay
their way through church-run Brigham Young University-Hawaii."It
must take tremendous amount of funds to maintain the place, follow public safety
and security guidelines, and pay all those students who are, again, working
"their way through church-run Brigham Young University-Hawaii."There is no public law requiring anyone to attend the Polynesian Cultural
Center. If the price doesn't agree with one's personal budget, one
need not attend. There are, however, FREE concerts and meetings at The Church
of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Conference Center and Salt Lake City
I worked at the P.C.C and attended C.C.H. 1970-1974. You don't need

It's a pretty good deal and all for the Kingdom.: "General-admission
adult tickets cost $49.95; VIP tickets cost up to $228.95. In 2010 the PCC had
net assets worth $70 million and collected $23 million in ticket sales alone, as
well as $36 million in tax-free donations... the tourist destination remains
exempt from federal taxes because the PCC claims to be a “living
museum” and an education-oriented charity that employs students who work
at the center to pay their way through church-run Brigham Young
Will the PCC president get a bonus in addition to his $296,000 yearly salary?
The PCC is a wonderful attraction - serving not only 37 million visitors but
also providing employment for a substantial number of the students attending
BYU-Hawaii.I have fond memories of my days in Hawaii and although I
did not work at the PCC, I had a lot of friends who were able to pay their
education by doing so.I look forward to going back one day soon.
My non-LDS parents went there on a trip to Hawaii. They loved it. Both drank
socially but neither ever mentioned a lack of alcohol.
Does the word "Never" ring a bell? Surely with the talent involved in
the show, you can make it until you return to your hotel. When will the Amish
get telephones? Enjoy the moment and quit caviling.
When are they going to serve alchohol? I was on vacation a bought the tickets
and took the long bus ride, only to find out no caffine or beer... What a
disapointment, I think the hotels need to put the disclaimer the it is mormon
