The Bloomington Sister City Organization will host its annual Taste of Japan fundraiser on Saturday, March 2, 2013 at 6 p.m. at the Hilton Minneapolis/Bloomington, 3900 American Blvd. W.
The event will feature a silent auction and Japanese themed dinner with live entertainment by Leo Hansen – an authentic Japanese flute player, Sansei Yonsei Kai dance group and St. Olaf College’s Taiko Drum group.
Proceeds from the Taste of Japan fundraiser will help sponsor student and marathon runner delegates traveling to Izumi City, Japan. These experiences have helped foster life-long connections to Japan and the promotion of peace through mutual respect, understanding, and cooperation.
Tickets are $50 for adults and $25 for students (22 yrs. & under). Tickets can be reserved or purchased online at: http://www.bloomington-izumi.org/taste-of-japan
