3rd Annual Senior Snowball

Last week we held our 3rd Annual Senior Snowball, an event I initiated to honor the seniors of CD14 who do so much to improve our communities and who so willingly volunteer their time at several events throughout the year.

When people ask me why I support our seniors, I think of my parents and grandparents, I think of “the Greatest Generation” – who lived through the horrors and sacrifices of WWII with little complaint. This year, thanks to a private donation to the event, we were able to raffle off three 27 inch TV’s and three karaoke machines! Thank you to the Los Angeles Christian Presbyterian Church in El Sereno for hosting us, everyone who participated, and to the amazing Chico Band and Belinda Linda for performing and getting everyone on the dance floor! If you have a senior in your family that would like to get involved, below is a list of groups in my district. Enjoy the slideshow!
