A DANCE FOR LIFE, A WISH FOR HEALTH

FOR A CAUSE

Sun.Star Cebu - - NEWS - MON­ICA R. LOPEZ / Writer

Some­times we dance when smiles and sim­ple ges­tures aren’t enough to ex­press our hap­pi­ness. Most of the time we dance for the fun of it.

In the case of Water­front Cebu City Ho­tel and Casino to­gether with ICanServe Foun­da­tion Inc., Ro­tary Cebu Fuente and Royal Gem, it was a night of danc­ing for a good cause as they pre­sented “Dance for Life: Twist and Shout For a Cause” last Sept. 30.

Bathed in pink, the ho­tel’s Arc­tic Room was decked ready for the event as guests in­dulged in food and free-flow­ing drinks.

Guests that night not only got to twist and shout but were also ser­e­naded by “The

Voice Kids” Sea­son 2 fi­nal­ist Jo­lianne Sal­vado. Guests also wit­nessed a night of fash­ion as cre­ations by fash­ion de­sign­ers Rei Es­cario, Griffins Malazarte, Au­guste Izhar Pepito, Jul Oliva and Hanz Co­quilla were seen on the run­way and mod­eled by women com­pris­ing per­son­al­i­ties, in­flu­encers and breast cancer sur­vivors/ war­riors who also wore jewels by renowned jewelry brand Royal Gem: Toni Pino-Oca, Jaja Chiongbian-Rama, Fely Atienza, Car­rie Bas­car, Ron Bern­abe Flores, Prica Nina Ma­batid, Bev­erly Dayanan, Char­lita Mait­land-Smith, Chip Lopez and ICanServe Foun­da­tion co­or­di­na­tor Mary Anne Al­cor­doSolomon.

With its month-long ini­tia­tive “Water­front Goes Pink” cam­paign, Water­front joins ICanServe Foun­da­tion, a non­stock, non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion, as to­gether they strive to con­tinue the fight against breast cancer by rais­ing breast cancer aware­ness as well as funds. With the Dance for Life event, guests not only danced the night away but also helped the cause as pro­ceeds will ben­e­fit the foun­da­tion which is ded­i­cated to aid­ing women with breast care health and breast cancer in­for­ma­tion, as well as pro­vid­ing ac­cess to spe­cial ser­vices that will help breast cancer sur­vivors heal more ef­fec­tively.
