In 2016, the same group of dedicated TAFB supporters who launched the Friend-to-Friend letter writing campaign decided to implement a unique event called the Mah Jongg Play Day. Throughout the day, guests will engage in several rounds of Mah Jongg, enjoy a delicious lunch and connect with others who have a heart for helping our community.

Thursday, September 22, 2022

9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., play begins promptly at 10:00 a.m.

Lunch will be provided during which time we will conduct a live auction.

Raffle tickets – 1 for $25 or 5 for $100. See below for a list of raffle items.
