2015 Annual Fundraiser
Maintaining Our Wonderful Land
Tam Bao Meditation Center will hold it's annual fundraiser this year on Saturday, October 10, 2015. it will begin at 6:30 PM and is being held at the American Legion Hall located at 151 S. Wooddale Blvd.
The annual fundraiser is the main vehicle for raising funds each year. As we all have seen, our meditation center is always improving to offer our Sangha a beautiful and peaceful sanctuary for our practice. We now must focus on creating a new Hall of Harmony and living area as the present one is too small and due to it's age has become very costly to maintain and repair. We envision a new building large enough to accommodate all with an expanded kitchen, greatly increased shower space, library, enough room for all monastics under one roof, and more parking.
All of this is only possible through the generosity of our Sangha and Tam Bao depends upon us to create the better environment for all. Tam Bao does not pass the plate or have member dues or anything like that but rather rely on the generosity of our Sangha if you are able to donate. Now is our opportunity to show our dedication and responsibility to the wonderful island of peace that is there for us on a daily basis.
The annual fundraiser is always a fun affair featuring a delicious six course vegetarian meal along with entertainment all evening from three famous Vietnamese singers. We hope that everyone can come and enjoy the food and entertainment as we watch the donation list grow on the overhead projectors. Of course if you prefer to give anonymously you can place your offering in the donation box in front of the Buddha statue inside the Meditation Hall. Either way we hope you are able to come out and enjoy the fun.
Tickets are $40.00 each and are available at the temple each day or on Friday nights. We hope that you all have the chance to come out and enjoy the fun while helping to maintain our meditation center at the same time.
