Cheers to all the birthday celebrants who were honored at the Salvation Army’s Quarterly birthday celebration for Chinese New Yorkers event on Aug. 24.
Bitta Mostofi, commissioner of the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs, along with Councilmember Mark Treyger (D–Coney Island); Angel Fung, community laison; Assemblyman Peter Abbate, Jr. (D–Bath Beach); Major Rick Ki with the Salvation Army; and Wai Yee Chan from Councilmember Justin Brannan’s (D–Bay Ridge) office were on hand to celebrate more than 100 seniors, including Sau King Lee (pictured, above), with a whoop-de-doo at the Brooklyn Bensonhurst Corps branch of the Salvation Army.
The commissioner and Councilman Treyger, in Cantonese, presented the seniors with certificates and gifts to mark the day.
