Chow Mein Dinner Canceled - Donations Welcome!

by Walter Tanimoto
June 2020, Volume 70, Issue 6

Dear NVC & NVCF Members, Supporters and Friends,

As you already know, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected all parts of our lives this past few months and the Nisei Veterans Committee is no different. We have made the decision to cancel this year’s Chow Mein Dinner due to the pandemic and feel that everyone’s safety and well-being are much more important. We hope this letter finds all of you in good health and spirit.  

As our state has been shut down from everyday activity by the Governor and we all work to slow the spread of the virus, the NVC has also done the same. Many “normal” functions have been halted; including gym rentals, events and fundraising activities such as our annual Chow Mein Dinner. Unfortunately, the utility bills and maintenance of the hall continue.  

Today I ask for your support by making a donation to the NVC in lieu of purchasing the annual Chow Mein Dinner tickets. This event is our biggest fundraiser of the year and accounts for 40% of our annual budget. Please help us to maintain our hall and budget. To make an online donation, click here. 

Thank you in advance for your support. We greatly appreciate it during these unique and trying times. Our goal is to once again have our Chow Mein Dinner next year.
