"We thought that a boutique is a good way to start fundraising and giving back to non-profits," Osaki said. "We don't really have a target fundraiser amount, but we get a percentage of the profits, which go back to our endowment. We use our endowment to fund activities and give grants."
Planning for the one-day affair starts in April. For the boutique's 10th anniversary, the fundraiser will include food vendors and the first 200 customers will receive a free recyclable shopping bag.
This year, the two-year, $1,000 annual grants will go to organizations serving the Asian-American community, including the Japanese American Museum of San Jose, the Asian Women's Shelter and the Ed Iwasaki Memorial Fund.
The boutique will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Mountain View Buddhist Hall Temple, 575 N. Shoreline Blvd.
