Sixty-seven people gathered at the Fallbrook Senior Center on March 29 for an afternoon of mental exercise and a chance to socialize with other Mah Jong players. Many of them attend all the tournaments in town throughout the year as well as playing regularly with small groups of friends.
The fundraising event started with a lunch of croissant sandwiches, baby carrots, chips and a white layer cake with cherry filling and whipped cream frosting. Then the 17 tables of players started three hours of Mah Jong using a variety of colorful tiles, overseen by Fallbrook’s Mah Jong Queen, Araxy Moosa.
Besides the entry fees, funds were raised with a raffle of donated gifts. Everyone went home a winner with a pot of flowers donated by a local grower who wishes to remain anonymous.
