Our guests do not always have much to celebrate in their daily lives, as their focus is on meeting their basic needs and surviving on the streets, and sweets are definitely a luxurious treat. That said, as much as the gentlemen savored the delicacies that were tucked inside of each of the treat bags, it was the actual bags themselves that really made the guys smile from ear to ear.
