On November 9, the Greater Philadelphia Asian American Lions Club was happy to support the Philadelphia Holy Redeemer Chinese Catholic Church and School at their 20th Annual Fundraising Dinner. In addition to having a good time, the club contributed to this important member of our community.
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!
GPAALC’s President Wai Keung Ng celebrated his birthday with Lions, family and friends recently. A roaring good time was had by all!

Our party last Sunday, celebrating the 4th anniversary of our Lions Club Charter, was a great success. Over 220 people attended, including DG Tony Mangabat and other Lion dignitaries, who helped induct new Lions Robert and Elizabeth. Thank you to everyone for their support!
Please join us on September 8, 2013, for a fundraising dinner in celebration of our Lions Club Charter’s 4th anniversary and the Autumn Moon Festival!
Greater Philadelphia Asian Americans Lions Club, in cooperation with Wills Eye Hospital, hosted Glaucoma Awareness events at several locations in early August. By taking the sessions to locations convenient to Asian-American senior citizens, they reached a tremendous number of people who might not otherwise get good eye care. These sessions were followed by 2 days of free Glaucoma Screenings in the Club office, provided by doctors and nurses from Wills. Those sessions were so popular that more people wanted to be seen than could be accommodated, so 2 additional days of screenings were added in September! The GPAALC thanks the professionals from Wills Eye Hospital for assisting us in providing this valuable service right in our community!
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!
The Greater Philadelphia Asian American Lions Club held its annual Membership Drive Meeting and Dinner on Monday, July 23, 2013. Lions and Lionesses renewed their memberships and welcomed new members, then enjoyed dinner at Joy Tsin Lau Restaurant nearby.
The event was even more special as the club celebrated
Lioness Mimi’s birthday!
