Among the birthday members that were present were: Luz Pinilla, Nestor Pereira, Elizabeth Mejia, Gloria Ramirez, Gustavo Santa, Virginia Feliciano, Nilda Betancourt and Mary Figliola.

Fallowing the birthday celebration the members and their guests enjoyed a delicious buffet catered by Mandi’s Café and Catering. The meal consisted of pork, ham, chicken, mix veggies, dessert and coffee.  There were door prizes and 50/50 raffles to top off the event. Door prize winners were: Yolanda Torres, Galud Segura, Ivonne Bonet, Sonia Echevarria, Sandy Coughlin, Carmen Santoni, Ana Rodriguez, Billy Betancourt, Cookie Santiago, Vicky Rodriguez and Luz Pinilla.  50/50 winners were: Mirta Zapata, Hector Peña and Xiomara Guanill.

The Dinner Dance Gala was planned by the board of directors of the club chaired by Carlos Bonet, president; Nancy Rozon, vice president; Al Feliciano, secretary; Ruben Aleman, treasurer; Ray Guadalupe, public relations; Luis Carrillo, director; and Melissa Sanchez, substitute.  A big “Thank You” to the board who worked very hard to make the last annual event of the year a big success. Many thanks to the members who helped with the decorations and set -ups. Finally, thanks to the members that donated the Christmas toys and the door prizes.

The non-profit organization’s mission is to preserve the Hispanic heritage on the Treasure Coast.
