The Center presents
REIMAGINE: Celebrating 45 Years and a New Beginning
Join us on Saturday, September 15th, in the Center’s newly renovated Nisei Community Hall/gymnasium as we celebrate the 45th Anniversary of our incorporation at the JCCCNC’s annual fundraising event Tabemasho 2018.
The event will feature dishes representing Japanese culture, Nikkei comfort foods and innovative dishes prepared by popular Bay Area restaurants and chefs as well as exciting new pop-up businesses/chefs like Clint and Yoko Tan of Noodle in a Haystack. We will also feature trendy and fun drinks like Japanese whiskey, craft beers and sake cocktails. Additional details will be added as new restaurants, chefs and vendors are confirmed.
Back by popular demand – Matsuri-style yatai (food booths)! Instead of serving a traditional banquet dinner as we have in the past, this year we will feature matsuri-style food booths hosted by local restaurants and community chefs. Come graze your way through a Japanese festival with friends, family and loved ones! Don't be late... registration and silent auction open at 3:00 p.m., food booths open at 4:00 p.m. and the program will start at 5:00 p.m.
The event will also present a live auction featuring a trip to Japan for four with airfare donated by Japan Airlines (JAL) and 4-night accommodations provided by Kintetsu Travel (KIE).
Supporting the event are Presenting Sponsors Japan Airlines, The Henri and Tomoye Takahashi Charitable Foundation, Union Bank; Benefactor Sponsors: Kintetsu International, Wells Fargo; Patron Sponsors: Comcast, Japan Center Garage, Japanese Chamber of Commerce of Northern California, Minami Tamaki LLP, Recology (as of 7/27/18).
