What is this?
As interns at the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California (JCCCNC), we (Miya, Drew, Erika, Sara, and Casey) were posed with the task of raising $500 to go towards the 2013 Children’s Day Festival in San Francisco’s Japantown. To do that, we will be hosting a movie night at the JCCCNC! 

Why should you go?
We’ll be screening Hayao Miyazaki’s The Secret World of Arrietty released in the United States last February---for free! (with suggested donation of course) We’ll be selling popcorn, fresh spam musubi, and baked goods homemade with love. We will also have a raffle ($1 tickets!) where you can win awesome prizes. There will even be a postcard coloring station where you can crayon your heart out. Again, all $$$ received will be going to a wonderful cause and helping the 2013 Children’s Day Festival. 

Who can come?
Everyone! Bring your boyfriend, your girlfriend, your cousins, your mom’s best friend--all ages are welcome; The more the merrier! Just remember this is a kid-friendly event so no alcohol will be allowed. 

The San Francisco Japantown Foundation – a non-profit organization that provides grant monies for cultural, community and educational activities to promote and preserve San Francisco Japantown - board of directors recently approved a matching grant of $4,000 to support the annual Children’s Day activities organized by the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California. The JCCCNC is calling out for your help to raise $4,000 to reach a donation total of $8,000 to improve current Children’s Day activities and address the growing demand in participation.

See you there!
