Christmas Party 2016

On Saturday, December 10, 2016 the 18th Annual G.O.A.’L Christmas Party took place at Jack B Nimble (잭비님블) in the Hongdae/Hapjeong area. The party included a buffet dinner, gift exchange, raffle, limbo, and an auction for our top prize! We had over 80 people gather together to celebrate the holiday season, connect to the community, and enjoy time with friends new and old!

Gift Exchange

The annual gift exchange is where participants are able to pick a gift from the pile or steal a gift that was previously opened. Thank you to all that participated and contributed gifts this year!
