WTC's 19th Annual Holiday Luncheon and Reception

Posted by Hannah Copenheaver

This year, we celebrated our 19th Holiday Luncheon and Reception at the Out Door Country Club in York, PA. Every year, we choose a different global location to learn more about how their culture celebrates holidays and exchanges gifts during these times. 

This year, we decided to choose Albania. Why? Because do you know where Albania is? Not many people do! Special thank you to Iris Kapo, Int’l Trade Specialist at the U.S. Commercial Service in Philadelphia for giving such a delightful, and energetic, presentation!
We also tasted "Shëndetlie me mjaltë" made by Amy's Custom Cakery.

We collected donations for the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank during the program. Together, we donated 100 pounds of food! Thank you to all who donated to this wonderful cause, especially with the holidays upon us. 

Congratulations to our food drive raffle basket winner: Scott Sipe, MANTEC

Thank you to all who attended and celebrated with us! Event pictures can be viewed on our Facebook page by clicking here.

Special thank you to our sponsors of this year's luncheon: York County Economic Alliance (Presenting Sponsor), Fulton Bank, BB&T, MANTEC, Oakworks, UPS, Zeigler Brothers, Inc.

Happy Holidays from Tina, Jan, and Hannah!
