My family and I spent the month of July, along with a whole team of staff from Siganos Management, opening seven new establishments at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. It was during a meeting with the Community FoodBank of New Jersey that we were asked if we knew anyone that would like to dance in “Dancing under the A.C. Stars.” I jumped at the opportunity. Since a young child I have always been mesmerized by performing, whether it is dancing, singing, acting. The fact that this is for charity makes it more exciting and meaningful, as I am very passionate in regards to stopping hunger.
