Open House Holiday Concert Fundraiser

December 8, 2019

The Rime Center will be having an open house and fundraiser to support its endeavor of building the first Tibetan Buddhist Temple here in Kansas City. Learn about the different programs that the Rime Center offers to the community.

There will be a 50/50 raffle, tamale sale, and more. The Rime Gift Shop will have 20% off all non-book items and will be open throughout the day.

The highlight of the event will be Barefoot Bran’s holiday concert. Bran is a folk singer-songwriter, performer, and recording artist based in and around Kansas City. With a healthy dose of tree hugging and dreaming, Bran crafts his unique, down-to-earth folk songs that aim to tell stories that are inspiring, insightful, and ofttimes humorous.
