The Stained Glass Bistro is partnering with Tibet Girls School to host the Spring Tibetan Celebration, a party, awareness campaign and benefit on Sunday, May 16, for the vocational boarding school for nomad girls in Eastern Tibet.

Victoria Fonesca, proprietor of The Stained Glass Bistro and its new bar, The Cellar, met Asang, executive director of Tsogyaling Meditation Center of Evanston, at the Global Activism Expo sponsored by WBEZ’s Worldview last spring.

Fonesca and co-owner Chef Victor Hernandez have a special connection with the Tibetan community and employ many Tibetan immigrants in their restaurants.

They were keen to help Tibet Girls School and offered use of The Cellar, at 820 Clark St., for the fundraising event.

The Spring Celebration, from 4 to 7 p.m., will feature an array of Tibetan folk entertainment, music and a silent auction.

Guests will enjoy hot and cold hors d’oeuvres from The Cellar’s catering menu; a cash wine and beer bar round out the evening. Tickets, available online, are $30 in advance or $35 at the door.
