Volunteering on the Dollar Day in Golden Gate Horse Racing Fields.

Berkeley Annapurna Lions Club and Berkeley Host Lions Club jointly participated the Fund raising event recently held in Golden Gate Fields (horse racing field). The Golden Gate fields offered Lions Clubs and other Local nonprofit, community organizations the opportunity to staff concession stands selling hot dogs, sodas, waters and draft beer for the Sunday Dollar Day special. For the day’s work, Golden Gate Fields donate $1,000.00 directly to the organization. In this event since two clubs worked together to support the event will split the donation $ 500 each.
On December 27th immediately after the Christmas Holiday both the clubs participated to run a stall selling items provided by the fields Management team. There were 24 volunteers who showed up and enjoyed the event as well as helped the stall informed club President Lion Dhruva Thapa. He further thanked all the volunteers and community members for joining and making the event a grand success.

It was a fun day though the weather was chilling but most of the participants were enjoying with their friends and family watching horse racing, wagering, and socializing and of course volunteering for the benefit of the Clubs. Most of the community members and Lions volunteers said it was their first visit though they have been living in the neighborhood for more than a decade and thanked the Clubs for the invitation and providing special opportunity to experience new things.
