Come out and join Nakayoshi on Saturday, December 3, 2011 as we volunteer once more at the annual Spaghetti Crab Feed Dinner hosted by the San Francisco Chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League. The SF JACL chapter will be serving their annual dinner of salad, spaghetti, crab, desserts and more! Proceeds from ticket sales for the dinner this year will go toward ongoing tsunami/earthquake relief efforts in Northern Japan. Prior beneficiaries from this annual event include the Nichibei Times Foundation, Nikkei Community Internship and the Campaign for Justice for Japanese Latin American WWII Internees.

Please help us support Northern Japan Tsunami/Earthquake relief efforts by either volunteering with us or by purchasing tickets for you and your friends (or both)!
