Lieberman Center Spring Carnival 2015

Michael and Gregory sponsored the carnival in honor of Michael's 70th birthday. Approximately 250 Lieberman residents, family, friends, and guests attended this gala event. Twenty five of Gregory and Michael's family and friends volunteered to run the games and refreshment counter and a dozen Lieberman and CJA volunteers helped residents move around the room.

Carousel music was playing in the background, the smell of freshly popped pop corn was in the air, over 100 colorful helium balloons decorated the community room, table top game tables were covered in gayly colored table cloths, kosher cotton candy and orange sherbet push ups were available as well as fruit punch.

Every player was a winner and could select two presents on the way out including Beanie Babies, key chains, bracelets, pens/pencils, boxes of Kleenex, bags of M&Ms, and more. A good time was had by all!
