MIAMI GARDENS – About 300 residents turned out on February 13 to attend Miami-Dade County Commissioner Barbara Jordan’s annual Valentine’s Day Dance for Seniors at Trinity Church in Miami Gardens.

Love was in the air as many partygoers dressed in all-red attire, which was the official theme of the night. 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.

“This is one of my most highly anticipated events,” Commissioner Jordan said. “Our seniors love coming here every year because they get to kick back and relax and have some well-deserved fun.”

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 baked chicken, yellow rice, green beans and lemon and chocolate cake. The event also featured a raffle with gifts totaling over $1,000.

The 2019 Valentine’s Day Dance for Seniors was sponsored by Bilzin Sumberg, Baena Price, & Axelrod LLP, Holland & Knight LLP, Calder Racecourse & Casino, AVE, LSN Partners, Sedano’s Supermarkets, Florida Power & Light, and Tax Drz.
