Concert for Japan – Relief/Benefit Concert in Toronto

Posted August 19th, 2011 by Kimberly in Japanese Culture

As you know, the earthquake and tsunami that struck the North-Eastern side of Japan has left the area with devastating damages worth more than $180 billion dollars U.S.

From September 3 to September 4, there will be a two day benefit/relief concert in Toronto, Ontario, Canada; to raise funds to assist with recovery efforts. This will help with the more than 9,000 homeless orphans, elderly and families resulting from the March 11, disaster.

Tickets are available now. Tickets are $75 for a one day pass and $130 for a two-day pass. Children, nine and under, will get free admission with adult with purchase of a ticket. Exclusive VIP tickets include private parking, entrance and restrooms, catered lunch and dinner, and a private viewing platform ($1000 per seat at a table of ten).

Tickets are available through:  http://www.ticketbreak.com/

100% of all net proceeds, through ticket, merchandise sales and donations will go towards Ashinaga, Japan Earthquake Relief Foundation and Global Giving.

Such acts include the Yakudo Traditional Japanese Drummers, Ricky J, DJ Battle and YouTube sensation Sam Tsui.

I hope anyone that is in the vicinity of Toronto can come out and have a good time celebrating Japanese culture while also doing your part in the recovery efforts for Japan.

Ganbare, Nihon! See you next week!
