Despite the gray weather outside, there was a tropical luau inside at UPMC's Children's Ball in the Carnegie Science Center on Saturday. Each floor held a special treat for roughly 680 children and adults. Kids were greeted by giant island birds and other mascots who flocked to take photos with partygoers. Families also enjoyed a Hawaiian scavenger hunt, a DJ playing island music, a train ride to transport kids around "villages," and a yummy dinner followed by desserts. If that wasn't enough, Tuika's Polynesian Island Magic offered partygoers performances that included a Tahitian hula dance

"This is such a great event, and for such an important cause here in the city. UPMC's Health for Life Summer Camp at Braddock, gives children the opportunity to engage in positive activities that they may not have been able to get involved in," said Cynthia Dorundo, President of UPMC McKeesport.

Seen learning how to hula dance were Mark Sevco, Maria Simbra, Mark Benninghoff and Vonda Wright.
