Zen DO: Imagine the World with More Zen

An anniversary party celebrating 50 years

Saturday, August 11, 6-11pm
Greens Restaurant, San Francisco

Together, we can imagine a world with more Zen — and the best way to start is with a Zen party — so please join us for a thoroughly fabulous bash celebrating Zen Center’s 50th!

While admiring some of San Francisco’s grandest views of the Golden Gate Bridge, you’ll experience both Greens and Zen Center in a whole new way. Enjoy gourmet treats and drinks catered by Greens (included in the price of admission). Dance to the beats of DJ Derek Beres, playing songs from each of Zen Center’s five decades. There will also a Zen-style trivia contest with prizes, a silent auction, and other fun stuff.

We thank you for being a part of our past, our present and our future, and for being a part of the promise and the possibility that Zen Center offers the world.

We look forward to celebrating with you.



NOTE: Current SFZC residents are warmly invited to attend at no charge. Please contact your center director to register, so we’ll know how many people to expect.
