Prayer Flags for Saurpani

gokyo-ri-flags-crop

Help in the Nepal earthquake recovery efforts by purchasing a paper prayer flag when you dine at Boundary Bay. We are raising funds for the village of Saurpani, a Gurkha village located near the epicenter of the recent 7.8 earthquake in Nepal. Our GM Janet Lightner recently travelled through Nepal to base camp on Mt. Everest, where she met some extraordinary people along the way. Fortunately, the friends she made on her journey are safe, however, many of their homes and villages were destroyed.

Working with Jwalant from Crystal Mountain Treks, our goal is to raise $10,000 to help rebuild the village of Saurpani. Our staff will be selling paper prayer flags starting at $1 — write a prayer, thought, or wish on your flag. At the end of the day, we will string them together and hang them up throughout the brewery. We hope to adorn our walls will several flags and well-wishes in the up and coming weeks. All proceeds raised during this fundraiser will go towards the rehabilitation efforts in Saurpani. We sincerely appreciate any donation towards this cause. Thank you.

Stay tuned for an official fundraiser in our Beer Garden.
