If the breathtaking view from Kenny Benjamin's residence in Stony Hill was a forecast of what the Latin American Women's Club fundraiser - 'Viva el Amor' ('Long Live Love') - was going to be, then you knew it was a great night.

DJ Elektra played a mix of Jamaican and Latin music to keep President Maria Pinchin, her colleagues, guests and supporters thoroughly entertained. It was a true celebration as guests were able to indulge in fine foods and wine throughout the night.

It did not take long for the guests to find their way to the dance floor and show off their moves. Latin seemed to be the language of love and fun last Friday night as couples drew closer and friends stepped to the beat and shook their hips, making the dance floor their residence for the night.

But all this fun and celebration was for a worthy cause - to raise funds to support the club's charities - St Patrick's Foundation, St Monica's Lepers Home, The SOS Children's Village, and The Stella Maris Foundation, among others. And that they did while dancing the night away.
