Wow! What an incredible 10th milestone year for our Nikkei Place Foundation Golf Tournament!
Our 10th Annual Nikkei Place Foundation Golf Tournament sponsored by Oikawa Enterprises Ltd. was this past Friday, May 29th, 2015 at Riverway Golf Course in Burnaby, BC.
With the generosity of our sponsors, donors and tournament participants we were able to raise an amazing $57,000 to help support dementia-friendly programs & services at Nikkei Seniors Health Care & Housing Society!
Thank you to all who supported our golf tournament this year and for helping Nikkei Seniors Beat the Odds!
