Blintzapalooza, Temple Beth Hatfiloh’s almost-annual fundraiser, is planned for March 20.
The event offers blintzes and bagels with lox and cream cheese in the synagogue’s social hall 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A used-book sale runs in the synagogue’s second-floor classrooms 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event features a cooking/baking cheesecake competition.
Since the event began in 1988, more than $140,000 has been raised and distributed to more than 50 nonprofit community groups.
The public can donate used books for the sale 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays at the temple. Books can also be left outside the east entrance under the eaves.
Volunteers who would like to participate in Blintzapalooza should contact Angela Santamaria at email@example.com or 360-357-7772. Volunteers are needed for book sorting and display on the weekends of March 12 and March 19.
Blintzapalooza took 2015 off, but announced at the time it would bring back the event this year.
