The JCCC Board of Directors is hosting the 5th Ishizue Award Dinner on Thursday April 18, 2019. The JCCC created the Ishizue award and this special evening to acknowledge and express our appreciation and respect to members or friends who have made exceptional contributions to the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre over many years.

The name Ishizue, meaning cornerstone or foundation, pays tribute to the 75 families who, at significant personal financial risk, guaranteed the original mortgage on the JCCC at 123 Wynford Drive in the early 1960’s. In keeping with tradition, this year’s recipients are a very distinguished group of people who have made significant
contributions to the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre.

They are:
Roy Asa, Hiroko Barall, Mits Ito, Noriko Maeda, Atsuko Nakayama, Kunio (posthumous) and Toke Suyama, George Tsushima.

An intimate and elegant dinner to honour these distinguished award recipients has been planned and we cordially invite family, friends, and community to support this evening of celebration and recognition.

In support of this dinner, the cost is $130 per person.
Please drop in to the centre to order to your tickets or call 416-441-2345 or email by Friday April 5, 2019.
Cocktail starts at 6pm.
