Hyphen Partners with JCCCNC for Japan Relief Effort

March 16, 2011


Hyphen is partnering with the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California and will donate a portion of the proceeds from a raffle at The Throwback Issue release party to the relief effort for Japan. 

The party is Friday, March 18, at happy hour, 6 to 9 pm at Vessel in downtown San Francisco. It celebrates the release of our Throwback Issue.

The earthquake, tsunami and nuclear reactor disasters have devastated large areas of Japan. As much as we can, Hyphen wants to help the people of Japan. We hope you'll join us.

Some info about the JCCCNC: It's based in San Francisco's Japantown and has established relief fund for earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan. 

The fund is only accepting monetary donations. Checks should be made payable to "JCCCNC" with note: "Northern Japan Earthquake Relief Fund."

You can mail checks to: JCCCNC, 1840 Sutter Street, San Francisco, CA 94115. Cash is also accepted.
