Honouring Community Spirit
Thank you to all who joined us at the Nikkei Place Community Awards + Fundraising Dinner on Saturday, October 12, 2019 at Nikkei Centre. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we gathered with community leaders and supporters to honour the legacy of the Vancouver Asahi baseball team (1914-1941), and their strength, resilience and dedication, exemplified by this year’s awardees (pictured right):
Congratulations to all of the awardees, and thank you for your extraordinary contributions to the Nikkei community in Canada, and the work you continue to do, to enrich the cultural landscape of Canada.
We wish to express our utmost gratitude for the support and generosity the NNMCC received at this year’s event. All proceeds sustain our ongoing work to honour, preserve, and share Japanese culture and Japanese Canadian history and heritage for a better Canada.
