US-Japan Council Earthquake Relief
Featuring Live Music by Kokoro

100% of the proceeds will be paid to the Relief Fund

To Our Community of Friends....

On Saturday, May 28th, we will be having a benefit dance that will have 100% of the proceeds donated to the US-JAPAN COUNCIL EARTHQUAKE RELIEF FUND.  These funds will be directed tot he areas that have been affected by the triple disasters that have hit Japan, and are still in critical need now.

Many of us have been deciding how best to help Japan.  Individually and collectively we can make a difference.  Your help is needed.  Help japan by coming to this event, help us by getting the word out and forwarding this flyer to your friends.  This is a time when all of us can come together for a cause that is important to all of us who have family and friends in japan, and for those who care about a country who is in dire need.

Below you can find the information as well as a link to the flyer for this benefit, and additionally donations can also be made at the door so YES bring your checkbooks!  There will be no auction or drawings, but here will be a No-Host bar and fantastic music by "KOKORO", who, from their kokoro (heart and soul), have donated their musical talents to this benefit.  The East San Gabriel Valley Japanese Community Center has donated the use of their facility to hold this event.  Their united effort has made this all possible and now we need all of you to come and donate to this important cause.

Reserved tables of 10 are $500 and the VIP Tables of 10 at the $1,000 level will have bottled water and wine at the tables, but more importantly, a larger donation will go to the Relief Fund.

All checks need to be made out to US-JAPAN COUNCIL EARTHQUAKE RELIEF FUND, and more importantly, put your email address clearly in the memo section of your check.  When the checks are turned in an electronic letter of receipt will be sent to you.  The US-JAPAN COUNCIL is a non-profit IRS code 501(c)(3) organization.  For more information please check their website.

This is an event that all of us can be proud to be a part of and say we did something for Japan.  It is a time we can all come together and stand united in a strong effort to help our beloved Japan.  Join us and bring your friends.  If you can't come, consider making a donation.

Thank you all in advance for your help!

Sincerely, Paul Isozaki and Carol Tanita
