Annual Midori Kai Arts & Crafts Boutique

The annual Midori Kai Boutique is our primary — and often singular— fundraiser.

As a non-profit corporation, Midori Kai, Inc. reserves 100% of the profits from the boutique for awards to non-profit recipients, and each year, at our boutique, our generous vendors contribute 10% of their gross sales to Midori Kai, Inc. A portion of the boutique proceeds are donated to selected non-profit organizations for a two-year period.

A special thank you to all of our 2015 boutique sponsors, vendors, non-profit recipients, and attendees. We had over 70 vendors and over 1,100 attendees at this year's event!
