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 the remainder of 2017, we again encourage your strong
support of these activities. Here are the dates for the BTSD’s
fundraising events in the latter part of the year:

  • Aug. 19/20: Parking Lot Rummage Sale
  • Aug. 27: 20th Annual BTSD Golf Tournament
  • Oct. 21? TBA
  • Dec. 10: Mochitsuki                                          

In addition, the BTSD/VFW Bingo sessions will be held on the
following Saturday evenings from 5 to 9 pm.:
  • September 9 (benefit dinner, 4:30 to 6 p.m.)
  • October 7
  • November 11

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 so these
events are therefore considered  temple fundraisers.

Thank you for your continued support!
