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.
