Leisure World Korean Community Church Support Centenarian Event

Golden Age Foundation invited those 99 years or older turning 100 in 2022 to a visit at their residency by the GAF volunteers honoring the Leisure World Seal Beach Centenarians. 

The volunteers brought a bright moment to the Centenarians’ life’s journey and celebrated their presence here in our community as some of the many things that make Leisure World a great place to live. The Golden Age Foundation would like took the time to acknowledge their special day by visiting and providing a special lunch for them and a friend or family member.  A gift bag, and a smile from one of our Golden Age Volunteers occurred on Wednesday, April 20th, 2022 between 11:00 – 12:30.

In that gift bag, they received a Centenarian Certificate issued by the City of Seal Beach,  a bouquet of flowers, a gift card from Sprouts for $25 which was donated by the City of Seal Beach. To sponsor the centenarian event, City of Seal Beach employees “Jean Thursday” raised funds. 

Leisure World Korean Community Church sponsored the Centenarian Event by adding to the gift bag gift cards for centenarians to celebrate the community event. Each centenarian received a $25 gift card from Ralph’s to help with their groceries.
