On Wednesday, February 14, 2018, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. and Healthfirst co-hosted the “12th Annual Bronx Sweetheart Luncheon” at Villa Barone Manor, honoring over 65 couples who have been married 50 years or more.

The luncheon gives these couples the opportunity to enjoy a complimentary lunch while also having the opportunity to dance, enjoy music and great conversation as they celebrate their nuptials on Valentine’s Day.

“The Annual Bronx Sweetheart Luncheon is always one of my favorite events of the year because of the couples who attend,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. “They are a wonderful example of the power of love and serve as excellent role models to myself and younger couples. These couples have proven that, through their dedication to one another, true love does exist. I am proud and honored to recognize these incredible couples and their commitment to each other.”
