Annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner

Tonight was a wonderful reminder of CASL's humble beginnings and exponential growth due to the compassion and hard work of volunteers and staff. Twelve of us from the Associate Board attended CASL's Annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner, along with many others who help with client service programs and behind-the-scenes work.

Bernie Wong, President of CASL, and Esther Wong, Executive Director, both spoke of the important role that volunteers play at CASL; without these dedicated volunteers, the operation of many programs simply would not be possible.

The evening of food and fun concluded with this year's volunteer awards.  Our very own Jing Cheng and Johnny Mui were both recipients, among others. They were acknowledged for their leadership work as Associate Board Co-Chairs, and Jing was also praised for her involvement with the Cup of Tea program. CASL-AB was mentioned numerous times for being service-minded and organized, focused and invigorated. We're so honored and proud to be a part of such an incredible organization!

A special shout out to KC, Cathy, and John who attended the dinner - thanks for being such awesome AB volunteers! :)

  1. I loved having a look at these wonderful photos from Annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner. I am so pleased to find these here. Well, I also have to host employee appreciation dinner party. Could you recommend any good event space Chicago?
