Holiday Cheer Happy Hour $5 @Blue Mesa (Addison)

Join us for the annual HOLIDAY CHEER HAPPY HOUR Benefiting Seniors at Ashford Hall. Since 2007 we’ve helped provide a little Christmas cheer to the Seniors living at Ashford Hall in Irving.

Its holiday season friends, so this happy hour serves two purposes. First, it’s a great time to get everyone together to ease into the Thanksgiving weekend with all our Meetup friends, a couple of great drinks, and some delicious food! Second, we can participate in a very worthy cause - a fundraiser to help spread some Christmas Cheer to Seniors living at Ashford Hall Senior Center in Irving.

We're asking for donations of $5 cash, or stuffed animals, games, playing cards, room decorations, large print activity books, photo frames, poinsettias, fleece blankets, board games, lotions, etc. for the Seniors at Ashford Hall. No food and no sharp items please (per Sr Center rules). We always need holiday gift bags too! We’ll go shopping on Black Friday to maximize your donations! Donations are OPTIONAL.

The Random Acts of Kindness Meetup visits Ashford Hall on the first Sunday of every month. All money collected will be used to provide a small gift to 200+ Seniors at their December 1st visit. Your cash and/or gift donations will be collected at a check-in table at the restaurant.

Several Meetup groups will be invited - it's OK to sign up with more than one group, we can figure out the final count. This is a great opportunity to meet new people while contributing to a great cause. We had 120 folks attend last year at Blue Mesa!

Feel free to come later if 5:30 is too early for you. Happy Hour runs until 7:30, and the hosts stay until 8. But some folks stay much later! Hope you will join us!
