Tuesday, December 19th marked the celebration of the holiday season at Ohio Valley Goodwill’s corporate headquarters in festive fashion with a delicious luncheon event for all its program participants and staff team members. Sponsored by the organization’s volunteer Service Guild and Food Services team under the direction of Chef Francisco Lopez, the annual holiday luncheon was made even more special this year, by the occasion of the Goodwill’s 100+ anniversary of service. “The Service Guild is so pleased that we are able to sponsor this wonderful holiday party every December and to have the opportunity to spend time together during this important time of year,” said Sue Burreson, Service Guild President.

The holiday luncheon featured a choice of penne pasta with Italian sausage or chicken and broccoli Alfredo along with a vegetarian option along with salad and dessert. The assembled guests also enjoyed the entertainment provided by local musician and long-time Goodwill volunteer, Mark Macomber. More than 600 individuals participated in this year’s holiday luncheon event which is always highlighted by the singing and dancing of attendees as they joyfully sing along to their favorite Christmas carols.
