Party pics: Unshakably Yours
A small crowd braved rainy weather to watch an impressive lineup of local performers at Restaurant Row and support Unshakably Yours: Hands Across the Ocean, a fundraiser to benefit American Red Cross efforts in Japan. Later in the evening, the crowd picked up and the event and performers, including the Kenny Endo Taiko Drum Ensemble, Jason Tom and Kamuela Kahoano, moved indoors to Oceans 808.
Although the organizers (which includes Paul Klink, Dan Hartenstein, Mike Licata, Willow Chang and others) had hoped for a better turnout, they said that online donations associated with the event had exceeded all expectations.
All of the $10 entrance fee, proceeds from the silent auction and 10 percent of food and drink sales from Unshakably Yours will be donated to the Japan relief effort.
