Nikkei Place Charity Golf: The HUGE impact of sponsors and donors

In 2018, 60% of Nikkei Seniors Society’s fundraising goal for the year was met thanks to sponsors & donors at our golf tournament.

Seniors in our community are facing the daily challenges of living with dementia, isolation, pain management, low mobility, and risk of injury. The generosity of sponsors and donors play a huge role in helping seniors #BeatTheOdds.

 

Every gift raised for the Nikkei Place Charity Golf Tournament provides Nikkei Seniors Health Care and Housing Society with funding to raise awareness and education, develop programs, and run existing programs that help with the daily physical, mental and social challenges of aging.

Here’s what you support when you give to the Nikkei Place Charity Golf Tournament:
