EVENT OCTOBER 2014

Hawaii Warms Hearts Event raises ¥26mn for sick children

Attended by over 200 brightly dressed supporters Money to support facility dogs and arts programme Work underway for charity’s 2015 event calendar

Shine On! Kids, a non-profit organisation supporting children with cancer and other serious illnesses in Japan, held its 9th annual fundraiser on 27 September at the Tokyo American Club.

Over 200 supporters, in brightly coloured shirts, sarongs and summer frocks were dressed to attract attention—and, thus, funds—for programmes the charity will need over the next year.

Contributions on the night amounted to ¥26mn, which will fund the work of two full-time, specially trained facility dogs Yogi and Bailey—who provide love and companionship to patients at Shizuoka Children’s Hospital and Kanagawa Children’s Medical Center.

Also receiving funds is the Beads of Courage® program, which provides art as a means of support and strength to children coping with serious illness.
