The Chinese Restaurant Association welcomed the year of the monkey earlier today in Phoenix.
The Association partnered with Central Arizona Shelter Services as they turned the CASS Kitchen into a Chinese kitchen.
Several local Chinese restaurant owners prepared and served lunch for 1,200 homeless men and women.
Those in attendance enjoyed Chinese delicacies and viewed performances by Chinese artists, all courtesy of the Chinese Restaurant Association.
This event marked the eighth annual lunch service by the Chinese Restaurant Association to Central Arizona Shelter Services.
