Also present at the event will be the American Red Cross, including Harold Brooks, chief executive officer of the American Red Cross Bay Area Chapter, as well as members of the Bay Area Ogawa family who through crowdrise and Hands For Japan have challenged the public to raise $1,000,000 for relief efforts in Japan. For every tax-deductible dollar donated, the Ogawa family will match the contribution dollar for dollar up to $500,000. Members of the Ogawa family will be at Yoshi’s San Francisco to speak about their efforts.
We hope you will join together with Yoshi’s San Francisco, these incredible chefs, musicians and community representatives to raise money for Japan in their monumental time of need, with a goal of raising money to aid in the rebuilding of cities, towns, farms, and helping individual growers, farmers, producers and fishermen.
