Because Sravasti Abbey, a nearby Buddhist monastery, operates strictly on volunteerism and donations, a fundraiser will be held this month to raise money for the medical needs of the abbey residents.

The fundraiser will be Feb. 28 at 6 p.m. at the Unitarian Universal Church of Spokane. According to an announcement the event will begin with a Thai dinner and be followed by a free showing of “Blessings,” a documentary about the nuns of Nangchen Nunnery in Tibet.  Susan Virnig will lead a discussion on the film afterwards.

Cost for the dinner is $15 and tickets can be purchased online.
