Lantern Festival Lunch Party
02/19/2011 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Happy New Year! Wish all of you a great 2011.
The LCCA Board has planned the first LCCA event for 2011, Lantern Festival Lunch Party. Please mark your calendar.
Location: Imperial Palace
The restaurant will prepare anthentic Chinese food and sweet dumplings for this party based on $13 per adult (13 years and older) and half price for children 4-12 years old. Children 3 years and under are free. The cost includes tax and gratuity. Listed below are highlights of this event:
- Please sign up for this event by sending an email to LCCA@live.com or submit it in the Contact pageby February 15 to indicate number of adults and number of children (4-12 years old) attending. Payments for meal costs are due at the event.
- We will be collecting the 2011 LCCA membership fees at the event. If you paid your membership fee in November or later last year, it will be counted as 2011 membership. LCCA has prepared 10 gifts for prize drawings during the event. Those who have paid 2011 membership fees will be entered in the prize drawings.
- The fun Gift Exchange game will take place after lunch at the event. To find out how fun the game is, please check out the attached rules below. Only people who bring gifts can participate in this fun game.
- Since many people won’t be able to attend the CSSA annual China Night (Chinese New Year Celebration), LCCA will bring some of the best performances to the Lantern Festival Lunch Party.
Gift exchange rule:
a. Bring a wrapped gift ( value $5-$10) and try not to tell anyone what it is. It is even more fun if no one knows who brought which one! (If you want more than one family member to participate in this activity, bring more gifts! Each gift would allow one of your family member to join this game)
b. Then everyone that brings one gets to draw a number out of the “hat” and the number one goes first. That persons gets to choose from all of the unwrapped gifts, picks one and opens it showing everyone what it is.
c. The number 2 goes next and can either choose an unwrapped gift from the pile or take the previously opened gift, forcing that person to take another unopened one off the pile.
d. This continues with # 3, # 4, etc., each either choosing an unopened gift or taking a previously opened gift from someone.
