The 3rd Annual Soy and Tofu Festival, put on to benefit the Nichi Bei Foundation, is in need of your help!

We are looking for volunteers to help prepare appetizers at Nakayoshi super-chef Graig Inaba’s house, and then help run the VIP Reception at Berkeley Bowl. Not only will the VIP Reception feature entertainment, a cooking demo and the Soy/Tofu Dessert Competition semi-finals, but it will be a GREAT opportunity to mingle and network with some big community individuals, companies and organizations.

WHAT: Volunteer @ the Soy and TofuFest VIP Reception

Shift Two – Berkeley Bowl West Reception Room (920 Heinz Avenue Berkeley, CA 94710)

DATE: May 12th, 2012 (SAT)



10:00 AM Gather @ Graig’s house, prepare appetizers

1:00 PM Leave for Berkeley Bowl


1:30 PM Arrive @ Berkeley Bowl, help set-up
