A GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL!

Thursday, April 14th finally came around and the Stay Strong and Mahj On benefit took place at Sarabeth’s for a yummy lunch, an afternoon of Mah Jongg, lots of candy for snacking during game play, and a welcome gift of a fabulous Baggu with the SSAMO logo proudly printed on the front. There were also great prizes handed out during the day for special winning hands.  I think it is fair to say that we all had such a great time! Enjoy the photos of a very memorable day…IMG_0001The much-loved Linda Feinstein, our honorary chair of the event. IMG_0004 IMG_0005 IMG_0006Barney G. was – as always – the life of the party.
