KOREAN TASTY TRAVEL EVENT – Wednesday Sept 4th

On Wednesday September 4th we hosted our first ever Korean Tasty Travel Event and it was a huge success!

Our own kitchen volunteers helped make the dinner under the supervision of our Social Worker summer student Nammi.   Originally from South Korea where she owned her own restaurant AND received a degree in Engineering, she is now living here in Canada and working towards becoming a Social Worker.  Nammi was instrumental in creating the meal and arranging for the wonderful entertainment for the event!

The Room Looked Amazing

We had over 60 people attend the event.
