Thank you so much for attending and helping with the March 26th Japan Earthquake Fundraiser. Dozens of volunteers helped before and during the event. It was a great event and also helped us unite as one big Milwaukee Japanese community. All of the bake sale items completely sold out. We also sold many T-shirts, and collected a lot of funds for the donation.
Here are the detailed results:
Cash Donation: $2070.00
T-Shirt Sale: $2680.00
Bake Sale: $979.10
The total amount raised: $5729.10
All the event fees were donated therefore 100% of the $5,729.10 collected will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross. The venue rental fee was donated by Logemann Community Center. Other costs including T-shirts, printing materials, bottled water, and other misc items were donated by various MJA members.
We are planning for a second event on May 15th. We look forward to seeing everyone again. We will be forming a committee to organize future events. If you are interested in being a part of the team, please let us know.
We hope our efforts will do a small part to help those in distress from this horrible disaster. We need to keep finding ways to help because rebuilding and recovery will be a huge challenge for years to come.
