Palace at Coral Gables Resident Turns 100 in True Miami Style

Univision

It’s not every day someone turns 100! When it’s done with exuberance & grace, it’s even more special. Palace at Coral Gables resident Elena De Volloldo celebrated the Big 100 and the Palace Entertainment Team went “all out” to make her day extraordinary. The day began with Mojitos, served to a Salsa beat by our Entertainment Team dressed in their Salsa best. Elena and her friends boarded a decorated Cuban-themed bus for a surprise tour. Our party girl dreams of her birthplace in Havana in 1923 and longs for a taste of Old Havana, so we whisked her and her friends on a tour of Calle Ocho with stops at Domino Park and the Cuban Memorial. Then, on to the world’s most famous Cuban restaurant, Versailles, where the management and staff serenaded her with their version of Happy Birthday and all enjoyed a round of Coladas. As curious patrons watched the festivities, our celebrants enjoyed an impromptu Salsa Dance Party in the parking lot before heading on to a fabulous luncheon given by Elena’s loving children. Happy Birthday Elena!
