It was a fun-filled salsa night at the Montgomery Road residence of security conglomerateur Kenny Benjamin. The Latin American Women's Club took over his Stony Hill residence for their first fundraiser for the year - a Valentine's Day wine and cheese party - one day before the actual day.

With the organisation's aim to help the less fortunate, it was a great way to spread the love. This year's funds will be donated to the St Patrick's Foundation, Missionaries of the Poor, St Monica's Leper's Home, SOS Children's Village, and RISE.

Guests mingled as they threw their heads back in laughter, exchanging greetings and hugs and kisses over glasses of vino as they took in the beautiful view of the city below. As CD Master filled the night with Latin beats, it was difficult for guests to keep still.

The buffet consisted of an impressive spread of cheeses which ranged from mild Cheddar to goat, Gouda, Brie and Gloucester, red Leicester, with everything in between. This was complimented by mini patties, grilled chicken, mini burgers, among other delectable offerings.

To wash it all down, the very best vino - from quality wines such as Los Arboles Chardonnay Chenin, to sparkling, premium sparkling and ultra premium such as Navarro Correas Alegoria Gran Reserva Malbec.

 

Gate Prize

 

While the night was about giving towards a worthy cause, it was also a night to reward those who gave. Veronica De Bonilla won the gate prize of a gift certificate for dinner for two at the Spanish Court Hotel.

It was an evening to remember for those who attended as they danced the night away under the stars.
