Sweet Heart Party: Music and lots of Latin food

By Herman Santa

On Saturday, February 19, 2011, the members of the Spanish American Club, Inc. (SACI) celebrated their Annual Valentine Dance at the Disabled American Veterans Club in Port St. Lucie.

The Sweet Heart Party started with a cocktail and followed by the dinner then the drawing of the door prizes, the Fifty/Fifty, the hat dance contest and finally the celebration of February birthday.  The 80 guests in attendance enjoyed and danced until late at night with Mendoza Sound.  Among the members that were present for the birthday celebration were Ivan Guanill, Nancy Rozon, Nora Candelario and Al Feliciano.  They were asked to stand near the birthday cake while the D.J. played a “Happy Birthday” song.

Door prizes winners were: Norma Castro, Luz Castillo, Virginia Gonzalez, Magola Lopez, Laura La O and Pedro Gerardino.  50/50 winners were: Virginia Feliciano and Auristela Medina and the Hat Dance Contest winner was Gladys Piñeiro.  The club raises funds through membership dues and special events that support the organization’s purpose such as the annual scholarship awards to High School seniors, Thanksgiving food baskets for needy families in Thanksgiving and Christmas toys in Christmas.

The members and the board of directors work very hard to keep the Hispanic community united and preserve the Hispanic heritage.  The next event has been scheduled for Saturday, March 26 to celebrate Mardi Gras Party.
