Dancing under the Stars
Special Olympics Molokai hosted their sixth annual “Dancing Under the Stars” fundraiser at Hotel Molokai on Feb. 5, 2011. Upon entering, couples were invited to register for our first “Dance Couple Contest” which lasted for 45 minutes non-stop. Six couples danced their hearts off, but the winning couple was Tina Aki and Richard Rodriguez, proving they have the stamina and vibrance to have won. Thanks all those who donated, volunteered or contributed in anyway to make our dinner, dancing, silent auction and lucky drawing a success.
