Salem-Ota’s annual fundraiser is held in the Spring.  Members sponsor a table and choose a theme.  Some popular themes have included “RoyalTEA”,  “Absent Tea Ballot”, “TahiTEA” and “2TEA FruityTEA”.  A Japanese guest is always featured as part of the afternoon. We have enjoyed Ikebana, Kitzuke, tea ceremony demonstrations and Japanese story-telling.  Tickets are sold by the table host to community members.
