Belly dancer Noelani Marie will be among the entertainers at the show April 29.

Belly dancers and full bellies will be the order of the evening at the "Opa! Party with the Greeks" dinner and show from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. April 29 at Spartan Manor in New Port Richey.

It's the second year for the event put on by the Daughters of Penelope Eros 356, a service, educational and social group for women interested in Greek culture and history.

"The Opa! night was very successful last year, and so far it looks like it is going to be even better this year," said Judith Koutsos, president of the 31-year-old chapter, one of many throughout the United States, Canada, England, Australia, Greece and Cyprus.

"Nick, the chef, makes an awesome buffet of all Greek foods, including Greek marinated chicken, pastitsio (Greek lasagna), Greek salad, spanakopita (spinach pie) and dolmades (rolled grape leaves), and much more."

The evening includes a wide array of Greek treats, including baklava and rice pudding.

The ongoing floor show will have music by the Greek band Elada, featuring musicians Deno Theofilos, singer Elias Poulos and bouzouki player Georgos Soffos. The Patrida Greek folk dancers and the Veiled Visions Belly Dance Review are also on the program, all performing in full traditional dress.

Proceeds from the event will go to Morton Plant North Bay Hospital and All Children's Hospital Foundation this year.
