Kismet Shriners Intemperance and Excess Raffle - 2024

Kismet Shrine’s Bring a Brother / St. Patrick’s Dinner

Last night Kismet held its annual Bring a Masonic Friend (Noble Bring a Brother) Night at the Shrine. With many in attendance including Illustrious Sir Mike Ferraro, Potentate of Ismalia Shrine (Buffalo Region) and close to a dozen guests, fun and fellowship prevailed and a good time was had by all. Traditional Irish food was served for a St. Paddy’s celebration and the Shrine was decorated in similar fashion. Kismet looks forward to new Nobles joining the Shrine to help continue to support Shriners Children’s and our Temple.

Shriners Children’s – Rose Bowl Parade

Watch for us during the 135th Rose Parade on New Year’s Day! This year’s parade theme, “Celebrating a World of Music: The Universal Language,” is beautifully presented on our float, Believe in Tomorrow, which is set in a colorful garden that is alive with music. The float depicts A young girl playing the cello – a dream she thought would be impossible as she is missing part of one arm. Our mascot, Fezzy, smiles at our young patient as he joins in the melody on his violin in this garden of hope.
Stay tuned for when we introduce our float riders! What is your favorite part of the annual Rose Parade?

National Junior Honor Society Donates Nearly 10,000 Can Tabs

Did you know that we collect soda top tabs to help with the costs of transporting patients to Shriners Children’s Hospital? Well the NJHS of Seldon Middle School sure does – and they collected and organized almost ten thousand of them and donated them to Kismet’s HPTF. We’ll take them to the scrap yard and the cash we get will help fund our Hospital Patient’s Transportation Fund. Thank you Seldon Middle School students and teachers for working so hard.
