Candles for Cases

Celebrate our 4th Birthday
        & Fundraiser
                  Free Admission

 

Friday, May 2     5 – 9 pm

Stay to watch Jim Bragonier & Le Jazz band entertain us with live jazz performance at 7:30 on patio (if weather permits).

Join us for cake & light a candle when donating for cases to display our hand crafted Tibetan Losel dolls.

The Dalai Lama and Buddhist monks of Tibet were driven from their Himalayan home by the Communist Chinese over 50 years ago.  A few of these Tibetan monks from the Drepung Loseling Monastary now devote their lives to preserving the traditions of their lost homeland through making Losel Dolls.  These dolls depict Tibetan life and culture through their intricate clothing and the characters they represent, as well as providing a source of income for exiled monks who now belong to a monastery in Dharamsala, India.  Patiently handcrafted, it can take between five and six weeks for six monks to create and costume a single Losel Doll.


A pristine collection of about 24 Losel Dolls was donated to the Global Village Museum of Arts and Cultures by its cofounder, Jeanne Nash. In order to permanently display them we need protective museum display cases with lighting.  At Candle for Cases you will get a candle to light after making a donation. Donations of $100 to $200 will purchase a shelf or new home for a Losel doll.  $250 or greater will be acknowledged on a plaque.  Our goal is to raise $4,000 by July 1st in order to receive a matching amount from an anonymous benefactor.

 
Join the party and celebrate our 4th year!
