Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon 2019

Our annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon was held on October 25, 2019. This year’s theme was Halloween and we had so much fun decorating for the event! Food was furnished by Sweet Lou’s BBQ and it was delicious! Entertainment was provided by solo guitarist Chris Anderson who was amazing and Caricature Artist Raoul Pascual donated his talents by providing delightful caricatures for our volunteers to take home. Amy Perez donated many of the decorations that were on display. We had goody bags for all who attended as well as great door prizes donated by local businesses. Thanks to all who helped to make this year’s event very special. Volunteers of the year were Laurel and Tony Martinez and were presented certificates of recognition from Mayor James Gomez from the city of La Habra as well as from the office of State Assemblyman Philip Chen. At the event we were so pleased to be presented with a check for $1000 from Steven Fernandez.
