Fundraising Campaign

Rising From The Ashes: A Special Benefit and Dinner.

  • After the fire, it’s time to come together, deepen our healing and feel re-Inspired. Join us for a special day of healing with live music, bally dancing raffle tickets, free refreshments and more art performances.

This concert is a fusion of friends, artists, and musicians from the Japanese and international communities. All proceeds will assist survivors of the recent Bay Area fires through Transformation by Fire(TbF), a local non-profit supporting survivors in rising from the ashes by healing the ‘invisible wounds’ of trauma. Join us for an uplifting and inspiring afternoon while helping others.

This event will be held at the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California (JCCCNC/The Center) and will benefit Transformation by Fire, dedicated to helping communities heal after disasters. Ticket: $25 advance (before 3/30); $30 (door).
