A BIG thank you goes out to everyone who attended our inaugural blood drive supporting The Gregg and Robyn Oshita Foundation. We had an amazing turnout raising over $1800 for the foundation and more importantly, we were able to have 27 units of blood donated to those in need.
We'd like to thank our partners: Heartland Blood Center, Leukemia/Lymphoma Society, Be the Match, Japanese American Service Committee and of course you, the donors. Without everyone's support, none of this would have been possible.
Please check out our Gallery page where you can see photos from the event. For being new to event planning, while we have so much to learn, we're excited by the turnout.
We'd also like to thank the following individuals/restaurants/corporations personally for their help:
Albert and Patti Hara
Darryl and Elaine Kaneshiro
The Chicago White Sox
The Chicago Wolves
Chicago Red Stars
Cheesecake Factory Downtown
Cheesecake Factory Oakbrook
Dan and Maria Burke
Kamehachi Sushi Bar
Our next event will be held the week of June 2nd-June 9th in Cincinnati, OH where we will be recruiting donors for our blood and platelet drive.
Please stay tuned to the blog as well to hear about our upcoming event in October where we will be recruiting individuals to join our team for "Light the Night." More to follow.
Thank you to everyone once again.
-The Oshita Family
