2020 Blintzapalooza

Our 32nd Annual Blintzapalooza is on Sunday, March 22nd from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. All are welcome! This event is open to the public. Cash and check only. No RSVP required. Please join us for this amazing fundraising event!

Blintzapalooza is TBH’s beloved annual community fundraiser. Each year, thousands of people come through the temple doors to purchase bagels, blintzes, and books. Usually on the last Sunday in March, Blintzapalooza is one of the ways that TBH fulfills the Jewish value of tzedakah, or charitable giving. Through tzedakah we work to create justice and fairness in our world and make Olympia a better place for all who live here.

Date: Sunday, March 22, 2020
Time: 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join us for bagels, blintzes and books! Frozen blintzes will be available for purchase to take home. This is a cash-or-check only event.

All of the proceeds from the event benefit local nonprofit organizations. Since 1988, you have helped raise over $210,000 for over 50 projects and programs at 30 different local organizations doing good work in our community. 


2019 Recipients


Zonta Club of Olympia - Next Right Step Program

Zonta Club of Olympia has a mission of advancing the status of Women and  provides grants, projects and programs that support our local community.

The Next Right Step is a collaborative program between Zonta of Olympia and Family Education and Support Services (FESS). Through this program they provide aid to motivated local women for one-time expenses that are barriers to self-sufficiency such as taking a class to get a job or a raise, paying for a car repair to be able to get to and from work and child care, or paying for copies of birth certificates that are needed to secure housing.

YWCA of Olympia -  Economic Empowerment Program (EEP)

EEP prepares unemployed and underemployed women for careers in administration, bookkeeping and social services. EEP looks first to human needs, especially as histories of trauma inform those needs; and the program provides empowerment, healing, and community care while building marketable skills aligned with market demands. In addition to receiving academic work and mentoring, participants are responsible for running the YWCA’s Front Office and Kathleen’s Closet (professional clothing boutique).

South Sound Reading Foundation - Literacy Bookshelf

 “20 minutes a day” for reading is the motto of the South Sound Reading Foundation. And even in the digital age, the most powerful and accessible tool to enable low income children and families to meet this goal and even more minutes, is books. 

This program gets high quality books into bookshelves and book baskets throughout Thurston and Mason counties. They sit in the waiting rooms of organizations serving low-income families, such as clinics, social service agencies, and food banks. Each child, each family, is encouraged to read together while waiting for their appointment and to take the books home. The shelves and baskets have age appropriate books for children to read, re-read, keep, and cherish.
