Received an email heads up for Tamagusuku Ryu Senjukai Hawaii’s annual Awamori Fest, a benefit fundraiser for their Okinawan dance school (Tamagusuku Ryu Senjukai Frances Nakachi Ryubu Dojo). Here’s the information from the flyer for the event:
The Awamori Fest event is held annually to raise funds for our Okinawan Dance School, Tamagusuku Ryu Senjukai Frances Nakachi Ryubu Dojo. The proceeds from the event will help fund for our future recitals, purchasing costumes and most of all, to provide scholarships for students who are interested in furthering their skills by taking the certification test in Okinawa.
The Awamori Fest will take place on Thursday, 1 December 2011, at the Rumours nightclub in the Ala Moana Hotel, from 6pm to 8pm. The event will feature Okinawan music and dance, a silent auction, activities, and, of course, awamori! Check out the Awamori Fest flyer (Word file) which has more information on purchasing tickets for the event.
