Community Fundraising Events

Over the last several years, BZC has sponsored auction items that brought small groups from the community together for an event: to learn a skill (flower arranging), to spend time in nature (kayaking) or on a tour (the Oakland zoo), or to enjoy dinner and a movie. This year’s fundraising committee has decided to separate these items from the September FUNdraiser Party, and to offer select events throughout the year (more fun for all!). So be on the lookout for announcements of these in the newsletter, on the bulletin board, on the website, and through the Yahoo e-group.
Our first event will be held on Sunday, October 9, at 4:00 pm in the community room.  Sojun Roshi, with the assistance of others in the know, will lead a teach-in on BZC’s Buddhist art collection. A donation of $30 to the Building Fund will be collected at the door, and refreshments will be provided. Please register for this event, so that we know how many to plan for. You can register by contacting Mary Beth Lamb at, by signing up on the bulletin board closer to the event, or by signing up for it at the September 24 FUNdraiser Party.
