13th Annual Community Recognition Dinner Honorees

San Jose JACL’s 13th Annual Community Recognition Dinner – Kansha (Gratitude) to be held November 5th will honor four deserving individuals:  Vernon Hayashida, Adrienne (Reiko ) Iwanaga, Stan Kawamata, and Rich Saito.  Mistress of Ceremonies will be Andrea Nakano, KPIX CBS-5 sports anchor and reporter.

Due to the closing of the Airport Garden Hotel, the venue for the Community Recognition Dinner for many years, this year the event will be held at the Holiday Inn, 1350 North 1st Street, San Jose, CA 95112.  Ticket prices are $125 each, $115 for JACL members, and $1150 for tables of 10. Reservation forms will be available beginning in August.
