The Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California presents TABEMASHO 2016
At the JCCCNC's annual fundraising event on September 17th event, popular Bay Area restaurants and businesses, such as Bashamichi, Benihana, Cafe Mums, Delica, JapaCurry, Kirimachi Ramen, La Mar, Pa'ina, San Jose Tofu, True Sake and Yamasho will line the Center’s beautifully decorated gymnasium serving Hors d’oeuvres and sake tastings; community chefs, including our very own Kyle Tatsumoto, Stoney Wun, Graig Inaba, and Nakayoshi Young Professionals will also have their own booths serving delicious home-cooked treats and Nikkei comfort foods.
We're trying something new and exciting at our Bunka Matsuri! Instead of serving a traditional dinner like we have in the past, this year we will feature 14 different matsuri-style food booths hosted by the best Japanese restaurants and community chefs in San Francisco. 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 JAL and five-night accommodations provided by KIE.
Supporting the event are Presenting Sponsors Japan Airlines, The Henri and Tomoye Takahashi Charitable Foundation, and Union Bank; Benefactor Sponsor Wells Fargo; Patron Sponsors Japanese Chamber of Commerce of Northern California and Pacific Gas & Electric Company (as of 8/26/16).
Call (415) 567-5505 or email development for additional information on the event. The JCCCNC is located at 1840 Sutter Street, San Francisco, CA 94115.
Proceeds from the event will go towards the development of dynamic cultural, educational, social, and outreach programs that serve the 185,000 visitors the Center welcomes each year.
Sponsor benefit levels available here.
