Some partygoers also wore festive ensembles in honor of the annual Valentine’s Day celebration in District 1. Some seniors carried canes or walkers, but that didn’t keep them from cutting a rug on the dance floor.

“Our seniors love coming here every year because they get to kick back, relax, and dance the night away,” Commissioner Jordan said.

The seniors danced the night away to old-school tunes performed by the local group Pocket Change. The Cupid Shuffle, Electric Slide and Wobble were fan favorites. Attendees dined on grilled chicken, yellow rice, green beans and lemon cake. The event also featured a raffle with gift cards including Publix and Walmart.

The 2020 Valentine’s Day Dance for Seniors was sponsored by Bilzin Sumberg, Bombardier, Holland & Knight LLP, Calder Racecourse & Casino, LSN Partners, Sedano’s Supermarkets, and Florida Power & Light.
