This first annual event raised over $14,000! Food and drink were generously provided by Le Pain Quotidien, Creative Juice and Val’s Liquors, with Baccarat as an event sponsor. DJ Catch and Double Up Co. heightened the energy of the day, providing a DJ and dancers who added to the roster of great Equinox instructors: Brandyn Guzman, Eddie Calle, Jeimy Cainosa, and Tony Rubio.
Spearheaded by Committee Chair Tony DeMuro, Equinox Regional Marketing Manager, we started planning this event over the summer. Though BCA's major fundraiser, the annual Luncheon and Fashion Show was scheduled for the following week (bringing in $1.3 million dollars!), we thought we could still do a little more for this great organization. Equinox Greenwich, generously donated 100% of the proceeds.

It was a day of great energy, high spirits and great teamwork. Naturally, it was the first "annual" ZumBCA for Life event.
Congrats and many thanks to the BCA Jr. Committee and all who volunteered and participated in this truly fun event.
