To help the recovery effort in Japan after last week’s devastating earthquake and tsunami, the Manitoba Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre is holding a fundraiser on Sunday.

Everyone is invited to the event to help raise money for the Canadian Red Cross.

Organizers say there will be food, entertainment and a silent auction.

The fundraiser runs from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at 180 McPhillips Street.

If you want to contribute further, Hot 103 is also selling T-shirts to benefit the Red Cross.

Organizers of Sunday’s event are still in need of silent auction prizes. If you can help out, call (204) 774-5909.
