#PrayForJapan Event Recap

Last Saturday, it was an amazing night of generous hearts and breathtaking artwork. We are so proud to have been a part of hosting this event that was solely for the purpose of raising money for the earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan.

Caro of Sweet Streets curated the event, JapanLA generously offered to give the work a physical home, and Bubble Punch was called in to arrange the logistics of the event and coordinate volunteers,and organize the raffle, drink situation, DJ, and donation sale table. To plan and execute a show of this magnitude within a week was an amazing feat, made possible by Caro, for having many sleepness nights gathering artwork, the artists themselves for producing and shipping their amazing pieces in time, the generous donations of products to be used in the raffle and for the donation sale table, and the kind heartedness of friends and strangers alike who donated their time to setup and execute the show both on Friday and Saturday.

Caro, of Sweet Streets, speaks with an artist.

We're so happy for all of the donations that made the raffle a huge success!

DJ R-Rated was so generous! (we've worked with him at other events, hosted by Munky King) He stepped in just an hour before the show opened to offer his DJ services and start rockin! (Photo by Dave Tada)

Todd and Misha volunteered their time on Thursday to help with set up, donated artwork for the show AND got their hands on this AMAZING Colin Christian piece!

We are so proud and happy that the event was so successful, and also that we were able raise over $11,000 during this event, (art sales are still ongoing at this time!), to donate to the Red Cross in order to aid relief efforts in Japan.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, to everyone who had a hand in this. No gesture was too great nor too small, and without everyone’s kind hearts this event would not have been possible. Everyone put the goal of raising money for the Red Cross in the forefront of their mind, sacrificing time, artwork, money, and (we know about this) a lot of sleep. This is what a labor of love truly is!
