Nikkei Place Community Awards & Fundraising Dinner
Saturday, September 20, 2014
The 4th Annual Nikkei Place Community Awards & Fundraising Dinner will be held on September 20th, 2014 at the Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre (NNMCC) in Burnaby, BC.
This event is held to honour Nikkei Community supporters and to raise awareness and funds. Funds raised go towards culturally important programs, exhibits and events taking place at Nikkei Place.
This year the theme is “Foundations,” recognizing individuals and groups who have contributed to building a strong and vibrant community and ultimately a stronger and free Canada.
Now in its fourth year, the Nikkei Place Community Awards is an event that recognizes and thanks people and organizations for their hard work in building a strong Nikkei Community from which we all benefit. It is our way of helping everyone in our Nikkei Place community say “thank you” to those who have done so much for Canadians of Japanese descent, for our broader community, and for Canada. READ MORE
