Kick-off Fundraising Luncheon

Saturday, April 22, 2017

12 noon to 3:00 PM

$20 per person

• Who is Catherine Busch?  She is an ex-nun, educator, filmmaker who much later in her adult life, learned the history and the harsh experience regarding the WWII incarceration of the Japanese Americans. She became incensed about the internment story, and it became her personal crusade to educate others of this injustice.

• Let’s Help Her Complete the Educational Videos of Japanese Internment !

Please come to the luncheon so you can all be a part of helping to complete this series! We would love to hear your ideas of how we can raise the needed funds together for this worthwhile project to help Catherine tell OUR story!

If you have any questions, contact Gloria Imagire (916) 427-6028.
