GPAALC board members donate $1,000 to support children with Retinablastoma

The GPAALC recently assisted several children and their families who arrived from China to seek treatment for Retinablastoma at Wills Eye Hospital and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

The Lions set up a fundraising table by the firehouse on a busy Saturday afternoon in Chinatown, and over $1,000 was raised to help the children and their families, with GPAALC board members leading the way in donations.  After the event, Lioness Mabel Chen treated the children and their families to dim sum at her nearby Joy Tsin Lau Restaurant.

Double Birthday Celebration

Greater Philadelphia Asian American Lions love a party, so a few days after Lions Club President Ng’s birthday, we had another birthday party!  This one celebrated Lions Club President Ng’s birthday and Lion Sam Chen’s birthday.  Two birthdays close together are worth two parties close together!

Impromptu Tuna Dinner

Lion Steve Mac had great success on a tuna fishing trip today, so he invited his Lion and Lioness friends to an impromptu tuna dinner at Tai Lake Restaurant, where he provided the entree!  Definitely the freshest tuna sashimi anyone had ever had, and absolutely delicious!  Thank you, Steve!
