Dear Noble Community.

Bodhi Charity Foundation 1st Fundraising Event in San Jose, California, USA on Saturday, June 8th, 2019 was drawn to a successful close.

With more than 25 Vietnamese gourmet vegetarian dishes and an awesome music program featuring Hương Từ Bi Group, the Veggie Banquet created an energy of compassion and how to nourish it by sharing our resources with others in need; and importantly, the proceedings as of the closing of the banquet was $10,325!

I believe this amount will slightly increase in the coming days as many folks called in and asked for the address so they can mail in the checks.

The Organization would like to express our deepest gratitude to the Venerable Monastics for the solemn presence, the generous support from our Donors, and importantly all the big and small effort from our Members and Friends to make this event possible.

Because it would be impossible not to make any mistake during the course of the event, we sincerely ask for your forgiveness if there was any act that caused you disappointment. We especially welcome your feedback in an effort to make our future events better.

With Gratitude,
Bodhi Charity Foundation

Dear Respected Monks and Nuns,
Dear Noble Community.

Bodhi Charity Foundation's three day fund-raising effort Feb. 8-10, 2019 at San Jose Lunar New Year Festival inside the parking lot of Eastridge Shopping Mall came to a close with great success. Despite some rainy (Friday and Saturday) and cold weather (all three days), crowds of people flocked in to see many interesting programs hosted by Jody Ngo and the organizing committee. BCF took this opportunity to showcase the work we do through the info kiosk but also the food kiosk and left a beautiful impression among those who came across the organization as well as those viewing Net Viet TV (net-viet.tv). We respectfully invite everyone to view photos of the three day festival posted on our Facebook page below:
https://www.facebook.com/pg/BodhiCharityFoundation/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1303075656500846 

Total proceedings collected during the three-day festival are as follows:
1) Information kios: $1,860
(Friday $380, Saturday $400, Sunday $770 + $200 check from Amy Thu Tran via chú Trần Kiêm Đoàn received on Monday 2/11/19 + $110 cash from Tai Truong also received on Monday 2/11/2019)
2) Veggie food kiosk: $3,590
(leftover food and supplies worth $100-$200)

Because this is the first time we participated at a Tet Festival with two kiosks, we understand it would be impossible not to make any mistake in certain area. As such, we will convene in the next couple of weeks with the intention to: (1) go over lessons learned; (2) review and reimburse receipts; (3) prepare for upcoming activities (Đặc San 2019, Funding for Đặc San 2019, San Jose Fundraiser); and (4) review and approve application forms.

May the year of the Pig bring you and your loved ones good health and much happiness and success!
