It was a sweetheart of an afternoon as Bronx senior citizens and high school seniors danced the afternoon away at the 2nd Annual Valentine’s Day Senior Dance hosted by Congress Member Eliot Engel, New York Sen. Jamaal Bailey and Council Member Andy King.

More than 300 seniors from their districts, as well as Cardinal Spellman High School seniors, danced to the oldies as well as today’s music and were treated to lunch in the Einstein Loop Community Center in Co-op City.

“Today’s event was geared more towards bringing our communities together – young and old – and spread love the Bronx way,” said Council Member Andy King, who spearhead the dance.

NYPD Captain Thomas Fraser, Commanding Officer of 45th Precinct, came to the dance with his officers and distributed red and white roses to the attendees.

Sponsors of the event included the Riverbay Corporation.
