Spanish American Club, Inc. held Annual Luau Party

By Herman Santa

The Hispanic community came together with the Spanish American Club, Inc. on Saturday, September 22nd at the Disabled American Veterans Club in Port St. Lucie to help raise funds for the club.  Over 80 members and guests attended a Luau party.  The party started with cocktails followed by a succulent Latin buffet, door prizes, raffles, a hula hoop show, a hat dance contest and finished with an evening of Latin dancing.

Among the guests attending were: Andrea Moreira, Cathy Murphy, Fred Neyndorff, Frank and Vivian Magaro, Ivonne Bonet, Maritza Rivera, Catarina Ruiz, Jose and Lucero Zepeda, Ligia Bernas, Hans Ewald, Joseph Mumaw, Joe Wasdovich, Berta Perez, Betty Vera, Sal and Diana Puentes, Galo and Maria Balseca, Ruben and Daisy Aleman, Alex and Melissa James, Felix and Maria Jimenez.  After the president’s announcements and grace before the dinner, the D.J. played “Happy Birthday” for the members and their guests who were celebrating their birthdays during the month of September.  Among them were: Felix Jimenez, Joe Abbate, Karen Diamond, Carly Werhly and José Ramirez.

The highlight of the night was Betty Vera who performed a Hula Hoop dance.  After her presentation, the directors held the 50/50 raffle, the door prize drawing and the hat dance contest.  The 50/50 winners were: Cathy Murphy and Ursula Carcel.  Door prize winners were: Ivonne Bonet, Enrie Monroe, Betty Vera, Mary Figliola and Isa Bryson.  The hat dance contest winner was Linda Manzanares.  Many thanks to the door prizes donors: Nancy Rozon, Mary Figliola, Lucy Santa, and Al Feliciano.  Special thanks to Lourdes Uceta of Latin Flavor Restaurant who donated the ice for the event.   And finally, thanks to our D.J. José Ramirez who played oldies and new Latin music and sang a few songs that every one enjoyed.  The next event of the club is the Halloween Party which has been scheduled for Saturday, October 27th.
