Dance party inspires kids

Hundreds of kids turned out in Eastchester for an inspirational dance party last night.



Oscar-winning actress Olympia Dukakis and Tony-nominee Constantine Maroulis were on hand to get it started.



The event was part of the Loukoumi Foundation's Make a Difference 10th anniversary gala.



The foundation educates children about career choices and giving back to the community. "We make kids' career dreams come true. We've had a girl watch a spaceship land on Mars. We've had a kid play football with the New York Giants. We had a girl who sang on the Broadway stage with "Rock of Ages." There's nothing like teaching kids about dreams," says Nick Katsoris, of the Loukoumi Foundation.
