Event Details

Saturday, September 24th, 2016 at Nikkei Centre in Burnaby, BC

Join us this year for Nikkei Place's 6th Annual Community Awards + Fundraising Dinner presented by Canadian Tire!

It's an evening of community celebration, where over 250 supporters, friends, and families will gather to honour four Nikkei (Japanese Canadian and Japanese) community leaders for their immense contributions in building a strong and vibrant community for all. 

The proceeds from this fundraising dinner will support Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre (NNMCC) and the cultural programs and activities that are enjoyed from young kids and families to seniors alike. Our goal is to raise over $60,000 in support of helping create a more welcoming, engaging and lively community at Nikkei Place with our message Nikkei Place: Feels like Home.
