@ National Steinbeck Center, 1 Main Street, Salinas, CA

Join us at the Pacific Gardens Benefit and enjoy Asian Foods, Local Wines and Entertainment!

Performance by Shinsho-Mugen Daiko. This group introduces a contemporary style of Taiko drumming with movements and powerful sounds.
Tickets are $75.00 per person.  For tickets and general information, contact the National Steinbeck Center at (831) 775-4721.

The National Steinbeck Center, The Chinese Association of Salinas, The Filipino Community of Salinas Valley, and The Salinas Valley JACL cordially invite you to attend an exciting event to raise funds for the National Steinbeck Pacific Gardens project.

Inspired by the landscape architecture of the Asian members of the Salinas Community, the future Pacific Gardens graciously extends the lobby to a formal and contemplative space.

The plans for the Pacific Gardens include a reflecting pool with perimeter canopies that frame outdoor exhibit panels that chronicle the local stories of the Chinese, Filipino, and Japanese communities of the Salinas Valley.  Interactive audio pods will present the oral histories of the various residents who shaped the community.

All proceeds from this event will benefit the National Steinbeck Pacific Gardens Project* 

Our success to date is due to the generosity of our many committed citizens. If you are unable to attend the event and would like to be a part of the exciting Pacific Gardens project by contributing a donation, PLEASE CLICK HERE.   

The staff, board and volunteers at the National Steinbeck Center thank you for your support and generosity.
