Celebrating the Craft web-a-thon and dinner

As the historic House of the Temple nears it's 100th anniversary, the Grand Commander and the Supreme Council share the vision of renovating the century-old building as a world-class facility for meetings, library and research, and museum facilities. To help raise money for this massive project, the House of the Temple is hosting a web-a-thon, strreamed live from www.scottishrite.org. Hosted by legendary comedian Ill. Brother Norm Crosby, the web-a-thon will feature guests, including Brad Paisley, Arturro deHoyas, Brent Morris, and more. Money raised is tax-deductible and will support the House of the Temple Preservation Fund and will be split with the Scottish Rite Foundation of Omaha.

This year, YOU can get in the act. We'll be streaming acts, fundraisers, and events that support the Celebrating the Craft fundraiser live on the show! 

The web-a-thon begins at 5:00 at the Scottish Rite Masonic Center in the first floor dining room with a spaghetti dinner, served from 5:00 to 7:00 and the web-a-thon begins at 6:00. There is no cost to come, but Scottish Rite members are asked to make a contribution so that we can say that we've had 100% participation. This is a great event to bring a prospective Mason to show off our beautiful building and talk about the benefits of Freemasonry.

Call Curt Edic at (402) 342-1300 for more information.
