YBA News – March 2024

YBA Spaghetti Dinner

This year’s Spaghetti Dinner took place on Saturday, February 10.  We were excited to return to the Temple for our fundraiser this year. 

The fundraiser supports YBA activities such as conferences, activities, and enables us to do our one quadrennial trip.  Additionally, we had BINGO and a raffle during the event.  $500 of the profit earned through the raffle was donated to the Maui Wildfire Relief Fund. 

This event wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work from this year’s Spaghetti Dinner Chairperson Jillian Higa, YBA members and advisors.  Thank you for your hard work, dedication, and flexibility during these past few months.  

Here is a message from Jillian:

“Thank you everyone who attended and supported this year’s Spaghetti dinner.  The dinner was a huge success and I loved seeing everyone again.  None of this would be possible without all the YBA members, parents, and advisors, so big thanks to them as well.”

Coast District Conference

Our YBA will be attending the Bay District Conference on March 16 that will take place at the Palo Alto Buddhist Temple.   Everyone is excited for the workshops, dinner, dance, and meeting members from other chapters.

In Gassho,
