Upcoming Fundraising Events (updated Mar 27)

  • Garage sale – June TBA – our annual celebration of impermanence. Decluttering? Spring Cleaning? Nudging adult children out of the house? We can help by selling those items that no longer spark joy at the Garage Sale! Watch your email and newsletter for drop off dates and volunteer information. No clothing, books or furniture please.
  • Casino – our biggest fundraiser! We have been assigned our casino dates: Saturday Sept 14 and Sunday Sept 15, at Cash Casino. Volunteer recruitment will start in May.

Please watch your email for links to Signup Genius to volunteer, or contact Jean Masuda at j.masuda95@gmail.com

Many Thanks to those who helped make the Mein magic happen on Friday evening and/or Sunday morning (March 22 and 24) joining the fundraising committee members to make mein. Together we turned 40 kg of flour and other ingredients into approximately 300 baggies of mein for sale, and also can supply mein for temple lunches. It was truly a friends and family affair, as workers visited with old and new acquaintances. The dough was prepared under the expert guidance of Sally Hironaka.

Thanks to CJCA, noodle making and cooking took place in the newly renovated commercial kitchen at the CJCA Nikkei Centre. I’m pretty sure that it was David who suggested that we should refer to our product as “hand crafted artesian noodles” and I know that we all agree! We finished Sunday with lunch provided by Mickey. I am embarrassed to admit, I am not sure which volunteers brought treats, but as usual with Temple events, there are those thoughtful people who bring goodies.

CBT Fundraising Committee.
