Spanish American Club celebrates Mardi Gras

By Herman Santa

The Annual Mardi Gras Party hosted by The Spanish American Club, Inc. was celebrated on Saturday, March. 26 at the Disabled American Veterans Club in Port St. Lucie.  Members and their guests enjoyed an evening of costumes, snacks, dancing, and of course, the beads. Our president Carlos Bonet and public relations director, Ray Guadalupe updated the members about the next events and thanked every one of them for their continued support.

Member’s birthday celebration was enjoyed by all. Month of March birthday wishes to Dana Peterson, Evelyn Carrillo and Norman Payne. Door prize winners were: Norman Payne, Martha Gonzalez, Unidentified guest, Unidentified guest, Billy Betancourt, Unidentified guest and Ron Bryson. 50/50 winners were: Millie Asencio and Unidentified guest. Scholarship raffle (Black & Gold Bull) winner was Unidentified guest. Scholarship After the birthday celebration and raffle drawings, everyone enjoyed the music of our D.J. José Ramírez.

Big thanks go to the members and their guests who bought tickets for the scholarship raffle.  And finally, many thanks to the set up committee and the decoration committee who did a great job. Next event of the club has been scheduled for Saturday, April 27 to celebrate our Annual Picnic.  The Spanish American Club, Inc. is a non for profit organization.
