The April 9 event was the eighth annual Healthcorps Gala, held at the Waldorf-Astoria. This year the event honored Goldie Hawn, Academy Award-Winning Actress and author and founder of The Hawn Foundation, as well as Gloria Steinem, feminist, writer and activist. The Healthcorps mission is to raise funds to fight child obesity and expand organizations in school health education programming. Healthcorps was founded by Dr. and Lisa Oz. The couple co-hosted the Gala. This was a black tie event, a magical evening of dining, dancing and entertainment, featuring C & C Music Factory.
Rodriguez and Doseck, along with studio owner/instructor, Kim Hohman and instructor Olivia Brown, traveled to New York City for the opportunity and experience. The dancers attended rehearsals, learning the choreography to perform a salsa/jazz number at the event, while the instructors volunteered and stuffed bags filled with healthy snacks for the guests and also got to work the red carpet.
“This was such an amazing experience for all of us,” said studio owner Kim Hohman.
