It was the first in what seemed like years to meet in-person with fellow members and supporters, where we’re no longer limited to the computer screen and succumbed to telework-stress. A little over 100 persons gathered at the View at the Battery last Wednesday evening to reunite.
For the third consecutive year, we have presented $5,000 of the proceeds and sponsorship funds toward P.S. 147 Brooklyn, New York’s only public school providing Japanese bilingual curriculum to children in Brooklyn’s community.
We were also honored to have Champian Fulton, Fukushi Tainaka, and Hide Tanaka perform as entertainment.
A raffle was also held, where the winner of the grand prize Blue Lagoon pendant was awarded to Mrs. Takaoka, spouse of JCCI President Mr. Hidenori Takaoka.
We would like to thank all program and raffle prize sponsors once again, and we’re looking forward to hosting other in-person events with you soon! More pictures to be uploaded soon.
