Spring Celebration Luncheon 2022
Gaia Cares hosted the Spring Celebration Luncheon on March 4, 2022 at Floata Seafood Restaurant in Chinatown. Over the past two years many vulnerable seniors suffered from isolation during the pandemic. To encourage them to re-connect with the community, Gaia Cares invited over 150 low-income seniors from the Chinatown neighborhood to a free luncheon with traditional Chinese performances including lion dance, Cantonese Opera and Lucky Draw. We even had a “God of Fortune” dressed in full custom to hang out red packets to each senior. In addition, many prominent government officials were also in attendance to show their support. Below please find some of the photos capturing this meaningful event.
