ABA December Luncheon Recap

Kim Smith unwraps her White elephant gift at Applewood's annual Christmas Luncheon 12/11/14

Kim Smith unwraps her White elephant gift at Applewood’s annual Christmas Luncheon 12/11/14

ABA members enjoyed the Annual Holiday Luncheon on December 11, 2014. The white elephant gift exchange brought many laughter and excitement. The money raised through “steals” and auctioning of the last and second to last numbers raised money to help with the local hunger relief effort of h.o.p.e. (Helping Our People Excel). Members also brought non-perishable food to be donated to our local food bank. Our December Luncheon has been an opportunity to network with more relaxed setting among members and guests. Debbie Hall of Mary Kay was an emcee/Mrs. Santa for the gift exchange.
