The fundraising auction and dinner with authentic dishes of India was a sell-out Saturday evening at the Seniors’ Activity Centre.
A total of 104 tickets were sold for the event that was held to raise funds for the Gendun Drubpa Buddhist Centre in Williams Lake.
There were dozens of interesting art items on the auction block along with hand crafted wearable art, and many other items.
This Friday, May 8 the east/west dialogue continues when Father Derrick Cameron of Sacred Heart Parish and the Venerable Tenzin Chogkyi of the Gendun Drubpa Buddhist Centre, who both attended the dinner, share some of the philosophical discussions they have been having for the last couple of years with the general public.
The topic for the evening will be meditation and the monastic life from the Christian and Buddhist perspectives.
All are welcome to join the discussion.
They will host the event on Friday, May 8 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the New World Cafe on Oliver Street.
