Last night, our community came together and raised $250,000 to support the people of Japan.
Less than two weeks after a severe earthquake hit Japan, 'From Oregon, With Love' rocked the Aladdin Theater to raise money to help. The event's lineup featured the Portland Cello Project, Pink Martini's Thomas Lauderdale, Storm Large, and special guest Saori Yuki.
It was a community effort to make the concert happen - special thanks are due to Sho and Loen Dozono, Stephen Beaudoin, Aladdin Theater General Manager Tom Sessa, and Mercy Corps staff, who organized the show. Thanks also to the many businesses that donated time and goods to support the effort.
Nick attended the concert and came back with a glowing reviews. Congratulations to all who helped make it happen.
