Chicago helps Japan- Fundraiser for earthquake and tsunami relief!
Tuesday, March 22, 2011 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (CDT)
Chicago, we need your help! Please consider donating whether you’ll come or not. Your help will make
the difference. Think about giving the amount for TWO COCKTAILS you’ll
have this weekend!!
I'm sure you've heard at this point about the tragedy that hit Japan. A ferocious tsunami unleashed by Japan's biggest recorded earthquake slammed into its eastern coast Friday, killing hundreds of people as it carried away ships, cars and homes, and triggered widespread fires that burned out of control.
The magnitude-8.9 offshore quake unleashed a 23-foot (seven-meter) tsunami and 200 to 300 bodies were found in the northeastern coastal city of Sendai. Scientists said the quake ranked as the fifth-largest earthquake in the world since 1900 and was nearly 8,000 times stronger than one that devastated Christchurch, New Zealand, last month.
Please join Social Sami, the Hunt Club and Eventbrite Chicago to help raise money to help the Japanese people in this time of tragedy. It's times like these that we need to be reminded that it could have happened to us. Let's unite as citizens of the world and give everyone an example of how amazing Chicago residents are to those who are in need!
100% of proceeds will go to Japan and Tsunami Relief program. Currently donations are being accepted through the Red Cross specifically to a Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami relief fund!
Each ticket will include your first drink and passed appetizers thanks to The Hunt Club. Eventbrite Chicago has agreed to waive the registration fees! There will also be a silent auction so bring your checkbook and generosity. If you're a business and want to contribute to silent auction please email the host directly.
