Pre-Party: Dance For a Cure


Dance for a Cure, the breast cancer benefit set for 5 p.m.-midnight on Saturday, November 14, at Eagles Hall in Alameda drew a fun crowd Thursday night to the Churchward Pub on Park Street for its pre-event party.

The venue, which used to house the Pop Inn bar, came alive with DJs — several of whom will play Saturday night at the benefit, like Alex Mejia (see lower photo).

Stunna Vodka donated several bottles of its ultra-premium liqueur for Thursday and Saturday night.

“The organizers of Dance for a Cure are really onto something good,” said Tinnikie Bryant, a Stunna Vodka distributor from Fairfield. “We are glad to be a part of it!”

Bryant and distributor J. B. Burrell came to Alameda Thursday to introduce Islanders to the liquer and to support the cause. (See top photo holding a bottle of the drink.)

“It’s so nice of them to do this,” said Millie Luz, one of the Dance for a Cure organizers (shown above, in the top photo on the left).

Also at the event was Silvano Hernandez of La Pinata, who has been very supportive of the upcoming Dance for a Cure event. “They have worked so hard to bring this together,” he said.
