Temple Beth El will hold its annual Hanukkah Party & Raffle fundraiser at 5 p.m. Sunday at the temple, 1501 E. Alvin Ave., Santa Maria.

The temple’s chefs will prepare the latkes and fixings, with attendees asked to bring their own main dish and table service, a dessert to share and their menorahs.

The cost is $6 for adult temple members, $7 for adult nonmembers and $2 for children.

Unique items handcrafted by members and friends of the temple will be given away in the raffle, a temple spokeswoman said.

Winners need not be present and will have their choice of any of the items, the spokeswoman said.

Raffle items include gift certificates for Jocko’s Steak House in Nipomo, PCPA Theaterfest shows, Central City Market and brunch at Santa Maria Inn.
