S for Snake, Service, Seniors

On February 7th, in light of the upcoming Lunar New Year of the Snake, CASL AB held a happy hour/gift drive at the upscale sushi lounge Ara OnWe had over 40 guests in attendance despite the weather and, with everyone's generously donated gifts and dollars, surpassed our goal of 70 gifts for the seniors at the CASL Adult Day Services (ADS) program!

We also filled out a giant Happy Lunar New Year card for the ADS seniors, and some of us got to showcase our calligraphy skills :)

With the help of extra funds contributed by AB, we delivered 120 gifts to the ADS Lunar New Year party the next day and saw MANY smiling seniors!
