The Family Social organized by the Mangalorean Association of Canada (MAC) on the 3rd of May, 2014 was a remarkable success with pulsating music, spectacular dance performances, delicious food and pure fun. The band, New Illusions and DJ, Johnny S made the event even more memorable with their fantastic youthful music and singing. The emcee, Ivan D?Lima created an ambience of comfort with his repartee, jokes and flawless execution of the program.
The evening began with a short welcome speech by Ronald Fernandes, President of MAC. He highlighted the achievements of the association, thanked the sponsors for their generosity, the selflessness of our volunteers and the dedication of his Executive Committee. This was followed by several dance sessions with great music by the band and DJ. Irrespective of age, the young and old swayed and danced while abandoning all inhibitions and indulging in pure pleasure and a stress-free evening. Dinner was a delicious array of salads, vegetables, meat and dessert catered by the Grand Taj Banquet Hall.
The highlight of the Family Social was two dance performances: one by Shannon Pais who captivated the audience with her energy, fluidity and expressions. The other two performers were Samantha and Savanna Goveas who danced to Bollywood music and enthralled their audience with their awesome choreography, gracefulness and dynamic personalities. The line dancing was the triumph of the evening with at least a 100 dancers on the floor in organized lines performing to some very popular music. A 50-50 draw was a huge success with the winner taking a sizeable purse home. Jerson Marques captured the night with his lens and froze epic moments for posterity.
MAC expresses its genuine gratitude to the guests who attended the Family Social despite commitments and busy schedules. MAC recognizes and appreciates the collaboration, support and assistance of the evenings' well-wishers and sponsors. MAC acknowledges and applauds the support, commitment and dedication of all its members and volunteers who worked hard to organize an event of this magnitude.
