The Santa Ana 714 Nutrition and Fitness Fair was held today at Godinez High School, located adjacent to Centennial Park. The highlight of the event was the basketball game between Santa Ana City Council Members, Santa Ana School Board Members, community organization activists, high school students and other city leaders.
Council Member Michele Martinez captained the red team, which included Councilman Vince Sarmiento and SAUSD School Board Member Roman Reyna. Councilman Sal Tinajero captained the blue team, which featured businessman George Pla, and two members of the Santa Ana Planning Commission. Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido was also supposed to be on the blue team, but he was late, having attended a function involving his daughter, and so he did not play, although he did stay and cheer for the blue team.

The event also featured numerous booths for food companies with free samples of yogurt, granola bars and fruit salad. Marie-Annick Courtier was also there, giving away signed copies of the book “The Saint Tropez Diet,” which she co-authored.
There were also several chefs there from a local culinary school. They put on a demonstration about how you can use a spray bottle to spray oil in a pan, without using too much oil.
Outside there were karate and gymnastics demonstrations too. You can see pictures of all this in the slide show above.
