Cancelled – Salmon Dinner Fundraiser

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances the annual Salmon Dinner fundraiser has been cancelled this year. With regard to the health and safety of the community and our own Sangha, Betsuin leadership has decided it is prudent to cancel the event this year.

The salmon dinner is one of the biggest fundraiser’s for the temple. Donations due to the cancellation are very much appreciated. If you’d like to make a contribution, donations can be made via the “make an online donation” button on the right side of the screen, or the link below.
