Hundreds of generous Winnipeggers packed the Manitoba Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre on Sunday for a fundraiser aimed as helping disaster relief in Japan.
After a devastating earthquake and tsunami earlier this month, the country has been thrown into turmoil.
The Manitoba government has previously pledged $100,000 in relief, but during the fundraiser, Premier Greg Selinger announced an additional $100,000 to benefit the Japanese people.
During the two-hour event, there were traditional Japanese dance performances, cultural displays and definitely no shortage of food.
