"We have really wonderful items to bid on. Local Sedona businesses, galleries, restaurants and individuals have been very kind and generous. Many in our community love the Stupa and count on it being there every day for them. We hope lots of people can make it. It's going to be a terrific community event to help make sure that the Amitabha Stupa and Peace Park remain as is for decades to come," said Alika Middleton, one of the organizers.

Local caretakers of the Sedona's Amitabha Stupa will be on hand to answer any questions and set-up Sunday tours of the Stupa.
