Japan Heritage Night at Citi Field

Posted in Latest

The second annual Japan Heritage Night was held by the New York Mets on June 21 at Citi Field. The game was preceded by an exciting Japanese taiko drum performance by Soh Daiko, and the colorful Japanese Folk Dance Institute of New York. We sold about 50 tickets for this event. A portion of the proceeds from the Mets tickets will go to Tohoku, although this is not through our Relief Fund.



Golf Outing 2011

Posted in Latest

This year's golf outing took place on June 11 at Lido Beach Golf Club on Long Island.  It was a cloudy day with tremendous wind blowing in from Atlantic Ocean the whole time, sometimes mixed with misty rain.  Still, it was very enjoyable and gave us a feel for golf in England and Scotland.  The winner was Dr. Yukio Sonoda.  The longest drive was hit by Dr. Jeffrey Ahn.  The two shortest to the pin were won by Dr. Makoto Iwahara and Mrs. Hiroyo Belmonte (Dr. John Belmonte's wife).
