Lantern Festival Lunch Party

02/19/2011 @ 12:00 pm3:30 pm

Lantern Festival Lunch Party

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. 

Date: 02/19/2011
Time: 12:00–3:30pm
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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
