The dinner will be held on Saturday, June 23 from 6:30 until 9:30 p.m. at Red Egg Restaurant, 202 Centre Street (at Howard Street), New York City. The evening will feature a display of precious Buddhist relics and charity auction.
Please see the benefit dinner website for details and RSVP by June 4 by filling out one of the registration forms: http://www.simhas.org/mcdinner2012.html
As seating is limited, early registration is encouraged. Your attendance at this dinner will help support the Maitreya Center’s construction progress and Lama Norlha Rinpoche’s vision for KTC Monastery for generations to come. The Maitreya Center will serve as a branch of the Palpung congregation of Vajrayana Buddhism under the auspices of His Eminence Tai Situ Rinpoche.
