Japan needs our help. 400 miles of coastline of Northern Japan was destroyed. At the time I write this, more than 350,00 are homeless, more than 1 million without food, more than 2 million without water and who knows how many without medicine. Flu and infectious diseases/viruses are spreading in shelters. It is winter and there is no gas/kerosine to heat homes/shelters. A lot of roads are still impassable. The sun will rise again, but Japan needs our help...
Join us at Isaac Hunter’s at 6pm on Friday, April 1st as we team up with Evan Pike Photography to raise money to help support the relief effort in Japan. We’ll be raffling off tons of great prizes all evening, including gift certificates to some of your favorite restaurants and stores. Come out to drink a couple of beers, enjoy some very cool artwork by local artist Rick White, and help us raise money for people who are in truly dire need.
You can buy Raffle tickets here online or at the event. Tickets online start at $15 and this gets you 10 tickets. You can put all your tickets toward one prize or you split it up on multiple prizes. For every $15 you donate, you will get an additional 10 raffle tickets. If you can not come to the event, you must contact Evan by 1pm Friday April 1st with how you would like to distribute your raffle tickets or if you plan on bidding on one of the auction items, which one and how much you are willing to pay.
