2016 BTSD Fundraising Events
Each year, we count on the Sangha and our community friends to
support the many fundraisers that facilitate the temple’s daily operations
throughout the year.

For 201
6, we again encourage your strong support of these activities.
Here are the dates for BTSD’s fundraising events:

  • June 7:         BTSD Japanese Cultural Bazaar
  • Aug. 6:         Bon Odori Festival
  • Aug. 20/21: Parking Lot Rummage Sale
  • Aug. 28:       20th Annual BTSD Golf Tournament
  • Dec. 11:       Mochitsuki                                          

In addition, the BTSD/VFW Bingo sessions will be held on one Saturday each
month, for most months. Please check the temple's calendar on the main
page or call the temple for more information.
Proceeds from the bingo
sessions are split between the temple and the VFW and are therefore
considered
a temple fundraiser.

The Temple will also host some benefit dinners to be held prior to BINGO.
Dates and menus will be announced
(please contact the temple for more
information)
.

Thank you for your continued support with the BTSD’s fundraisers!
