They dined, danced and donated to scholarship

By Herman Santa

Over 50 guests participated to our Scholarship Night Dinner Dance of the Spanish American Club, Inc. on Saturday 28, 2011 at the  “El Floridita Cuban Cuisine restaurant”.   Attendees were treated to a delicious dinner of El Florida  favorites prepared by the owners of the restaurant Antonio Julian and his wife  Mary Cuba.

The Highlights of the night were Ramon “Ray” Cruz and Victor “Vic” Toledo who sang few songs for the  attendees.  Ray sang two tangos and two Boleros “ Amarga Decepción” and “Sin Egoismo”, “Gricel”  and Melodias Arrabal”.  Vic played and sang four songs with his guitar “Guantanamera”, “Oye como Va”,  “La Bamba” and “Tequila”.

After the artistic show, the scholarship committee held the raffle for the 50/50 and door prizes.  Mary Chang was the lucky winner of the 50/50 raffle.  Others door prize winners were: Isa Bryson, Cecilia Pulido and Mercedes Marquez. Herman Santa was the D.J. and chaired the event with scholarship committee Nancy Rozon and Isa Bryson.  Thanks to the generosity of the attendees, the party resulted in substantial funds being generated for the scholarship.  The next events have been scheduled for Sunday, June 12th at 3 P.M. “Annual Bowling Tournament” at the Jensen  Beach Bowl and Saturday, June 25th to celebrate Father’s Day.

El evento organizado por el comité de becas del club compuesto por Herman Santa, Nancy Rozon e Isa Bryson comenzó con una cena, un espectáculo de dos cantantes locales y terminó con baile hasta las doce de la noche.  Gracias a Julian y Mary Cuba y los que donaron regalos para los concurrentes.
