We raised over $60,000 to help Beat the Odds of dementia!

The 2017 NPF Golf Committee greatly appreciates your assistance in helping us raise over $60,000 for the Nikkei Seniors Health Care & Housing Society (NSHCHS) on Friday, May 26th, 2017 at Riverway Golf Course in Burnaby!

Funds raised help support and broaden the reach of the Nimi Nikkei Home’s aim of enhancing quality of life for seniors, caregivers, and families. Your generosity goes directly towards multiple initiatives, including day programs for seniors living with dementia, wellness and dementia education for families, exercise programs for older adults with mobility issues, and the construction of a dedicated seniors’ activity room, opening in early 2018.

Once again, we would also like to extend our thanks to Strand Properties Corporation, Bosa Properties, Self Storage Depot, Mr. Ken Yada and Family, Fujiya, ONNI Group, Interworld, the Keg Steakhouse + Bar, the Jack Gin Foundation and the LJB Foundation.

None of this would have been possible without our generous Sponsors, Donors, Golfers and Volunteers. Thanks to overwhelming response, our growing tournament sold out for the second year in a row! Please reserve your foursome for next year’s tournament to avoid disappointment. Stay tuned for our announcement and event date for 2018.

An incredibly successful Community Awards + Fundraising Dinner in support of our ‘Nikkei Place: Feels Like Home’ initiative

On Saturday, September 24th, 2016 we celebrated and honoured four of our Nikkei community leaders at our Community Awards + Fundraising Dinner presented by Canadian Tire!

We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came and supported the event, and we hope you enjoyed the evening! Your support benefits Nikkei Place: Feels Like Home  our initiative to make Nikkei Place a second home for all to enjoy.

It was truly a night of inspiration, listening to the rich stories and accomplishments of our awardees. We feel thankful many of you came to celebrate with us as we honoured Dr. Akira Horii, Mr. Takeo Yamashiro, Ms. Yoko Matsuno and Mr. John Endo Greenaway for their immense service to the Nikkei Community and to Canada. This year also marked the first time we were able to award the Nikkei Youth Athletics Bursary – congratulations once again to Beth Kamimura!


Thanks to the generosity of our community, together we were able to raise over $100,000 in a single evening before event expenses for our Feels Like Home initiative.


The Board of Directors and staff of Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre and Nikkei Place Foundation thank everyone — the awardees, guests, sponsors, donors, presenters and volunteers — for helping make this year’s Awards Dinner a remarkable success, and we hope to see everyone back again next year!

We invite you to view and share photos from the event with your friends below or connect with us on our facebook page!

Thank you once again for your support!
