Today was the Third Annual Mah Jongg Lunch and Tournament to benefit Corinne Goldsmith Dickinson MS Center at Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai Hospital , held at the Yale Club. I have attended this tournament all three years but today was the first time that I did not play in the tournament because…I was a vendor selling my new book, Mah Jongg: The Art of the Game!
Read on for more about today’s fun tournament…
First there was lunch, starting with a Caesar Salad followed by a mushroom ravioli main course. But the best part was the dessert table:
YUM!! And, of course, there were lots of beverages:
And my dear, dear friends (even though I didn’t get to play Mah Jongg with them today…)
There was a nice turn-out today…and all for a very good cause.
There were also several tables laden with all kinds of gifts, jewelry, scarves, purses, etc:
I would love to attend this event next year! Please keep me on your list. Veronica Casey. firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Casey – I will give the organizers your name and email address – it is a fun day for a great cause!
love those necklaces.. sure look like some of my Coppola e Toppo vintage ones..the whole event looked beautiful.
Hi Shirley – it was a fun day and as I have said, for a great cause. Am not familiar with Coppola e Toppo – would love to see photos!
I would also love to be put on the list for future events. Are they always at the same venue?
I’m a new follower (and player) and am loving both the game and your blog. Best of luck with the book.
Hi Karen – thanks for this lovely message. I will send your name and address over to the Center right now. The event has been at the Yale Club for the past three years and I am guessing it will stay there. Glad you are loving our favorite game (and my blog!).
Hi Ann, Perhaps you have already done this but – can you give us a short description of Mah Jongg, The Art of the Game?
Thank you so much,
Thanks, Carol. I would be happy to give a description of the book – I will do a posting this coming week.
Thanks Ann, I look forward to it.
