â€œThe Bahia Shriners Tree of Life Endowment Fundâ€
The Bahia Tree of Life was started in 2005 by Lady Anne Bergenske as her First Ladies project.
It was an overnight success and surpassed our first year goals in the first several months.
The money donated to the Tree goes into an endowment fund for the support of Bahia Shrine Centerâ€™s building fund. As the money grows in the fund, only the interest on the money can be used, and the principal will continue to grow for years to come. This will help to insure that we will always be able to keep our building beautiful long after our membership is unable to handle the expense of maintaining the buildings and facilities of Bahia Shriners.
All proceeds benefit Bahia Shriners and are not a charitable tax deduction.
