An Evening of Benefit and Bliss:
Benefit Dinner & Raffle for KMC Madison

Saturday, June 6, 5-8 PM


We hope you’ll plan to join us for a wonderful evening with friends and family, following a fun program which includes enjoying hors d’oeuvres and elegant drinks in our community room, and a chance to browse our amazing raffle and auction items. This is followed a classical music performance and some inspiration from Gen Gomlam. Then, we’ll enjoy a delicious full course dinner (of Indian cuisine), and round the night out with dessert and announcement of the raffle and silent auction winners.

All funds raised will go toward improving our facility. Our main project is a new parking lot, which will beautify our space and make parking more accessible and safe in the winter months.

Everyone welcome – please bring your friends and family to enjoy this delightful event!

* Space is limited, so reserve your spot today!
