Wisecrackers, Divas & Dancers – The Lott Residence Prom

"Quando, Quando, Quando"

Volunteers from Catholic Charities New York’s Junior Board recently gathered for the Lott Residence Senior Prom. The CCNY assisted living facility held its annual event last week, complete with live music and a lounge singer.  This year’s theme was St. Patrick’s Day. Volunteers danced with the residents and offered snacks and drinks.

We “are always struck by how much joy these residents experience from something as simple as a song and a cup of punch, and how enthusiastically they express their gratitude. Really, we’re the grateful ones, for having the chance to get to know these joyful, funny, energetic, amazing New Yorkers,” said Junior Board Volunteer Committee Co-Chair, Mary Kate Skehan.
