Weekly Update 9/10

Dear Members and Friends of JASH,

The Japan-America Society of Hawaii cordially invites you to our 2020 JASH Annual Gala Reimagined and Online Silent Auction. Our 2020 theme is “Mirai 未来 – Our New Future,” which we found fitting as we take on this unpredictable time and reimagine the ways that we can operate as a community organization.

Each year, JASH honors an individual, company, or organization with the Bridge Award for promoting understanding and friendship between Hawaii and Japan. In the spirit of building bridges of friendship, we are pleased to present the Sony Corporation with the Bridge Award for their exemplary leadership in fostering a relationship between Japan and the U.S. We are also honored to have Corbett Kalama, President of Friends of Hawaii Charities, as this year's keynote speaker.
