Palo Alto Buddhist Temple 2021
29th Annual Golf Tournament & Dinner
Palo Alto Buddhist Temple's 2021 Golf Tournament & Dinner Fundraiser
Saturday, August 28th, 2021
Hello all golfers, hackers, wanna-be golfers, Wii golfers, former golfers, duffers, scratch or 20+ index golfers, friends of golfers, family of golfers.
On behalf of the Palo Alto Buddhist Temple Golf Tournament committee, Dean Kumagai, Mike Nakanishi, Mark Hamamoto, Blair Chikasuye & Laura Norimoto....
It's back! The long wait is finally over and the Palo Alto Buddhist Temple is proud to announce it's Golf Tournament is finally scheduled....
WHEN: Saturday, August 28th, 2021; (tee times 9:30am - 12:10pm)
WHERE: Shoreline Golf Links, 2940 N Shoreline Blvd, Mountain View, CA 94043
WHY: To have fun and support PABT after more than a year of not being able to hold any in-person fundraisers and raise necessary funds to help keep the Temple running.
It has been an extremely tumultuous and agonizing two years and like you I'm looking forward to some sense of normalcy. The Temple has not been able to hold in-person funerals or memorial services, we've had over 15 months of Zoom Sunday Dharma services. We have all also missed 2 years of Obon celebrations, and unfortunately the Temple missed the opportunity to hold the largest fundraiser of the year. Each of us has missed the camaraderie, hanging out with friends new & old, raising a glass with Dean in the beer garden, the delicious smell and taste of the wonderful PABT Obon food, the music and Odori dancing. The setup and the clean-up, but alas, at the annual golf tournament you'll be able to once again enjoy an amazing day with friends & family, play a round of golf, raise a glass at what we hope will be a banquet back at the gym (TBD).
This is an opportunity for us all to reflect on how fortunate we are to even have such an opportunity. So please get your registrations in and share this with everyone you can think of who would enjoy participating.
We would also appreciate any help you can provide in procuring or donating prizes (depending on the product = prize or auction item). Of course golf related is great but not absolute, anything would be awesome. In addition to the golf flyer/reg form a donation letter with the Temple Tax ID is also attached.
Hope to see you at the course if not sooner...
Thank you and Gassho,
PABT President 2021
PS: Look for upcoming information on our next Car Show scheduled for Saturday September 25th.
