Update: Just a reminder that the fundraiser for Japan is only a day away and we’ve got some more information on the night. The raffle drawing at 9pm has great items from The Source, naked Retreats, and JUE Festival while there are amazing auction packages (fine dining, air travel and hotel stays) up for bids at 10:30pm. What’s more, Blue Frog will be generously matching the total donation from the evening.
The outpouring of support for Japanese earthquake relief efforts continue in Shanghai and the world over. Here is another excellent, extremely worthy way to lend a hand.
On Friday, March 11, the 8.9 magnitude Tōhoku earthquake devastated the coast of Japan – the worst earthquake the country has experienced since 1923. The earthquake was so powerful that it triggered a destructive 10-meter high tsunami, which struck the country’s northeastern shores and washed away entire towns. The country is entering a dark period in time as the destruction caused by the natural disasters has taken the lives of over 9,000 people with many more still left missing. The earthquake and the subsequent destruction have caused Japan to suffer upwards of $300 billion in damages, which will take many years for the country to rebuild. As these tragedies unfold, we cannot afford to stand by and watch.
Three friends (Mindy Chen, Whitney Yang and Nina Kong) are taking action by organizing a benefit party to provide necessary emergency relief for Japan’s victims. Please join us for QUAKE APPEAL on Wednesday, March 30th- a casual evening filled with live music, raffle drawings and a live auction, all while enjoying a magnificent view of the Bund. The evening’s proceeds from the entrance fees, drinks sales, raffle tickets and the live auction will go directly to the Japanese Red Cross with a target to meet 50,000 RMB. Please join us for this special event as we put our hands and hearts together for Japan.
