Fall Dana Fair and Sakyong's Birthday Pot Luck


November 16 / 2:00 PM - November 16 / 7:30 PM

This fun community event has two parts: a Fall Dana Fair, followed by a pot luck party to celebrate the birthday of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.


The name "Dana Fair" was chosen to arouse curiosity and interest: “dana” is the Sanskrit word for “generosity.”  In English, this will be an art/crafts/services sale  It is a fund raising event to support the Center’s Building and Scholarship Funds and a timely event for your holiday shopping.
