Hotel Kabuki General Manager Craig Waterman presented San Francisco Japantown Foundation Board President Donald Tamaki with a check for $34,500 at our New Year Celebration with Osechi Ryori event on January 5, 2017, held at Hotel Kabuki.
The generous donation marks a continuation of the foundation’s philanthropic partnership with Hotel Kabuki. The Japantown Foundation receives funds raised through the hotel’s You Can Make a Difference program, which asks guests to make a donation when they stay at the property. The San Francisco Japantown Foundation has been Hotel Kabuki’s philanthropic partner since October 2013.
The donations from Hotel Kabuki – combined with proceeds from our annual New Year Celebration and from our original endowment – enable us to provide annual grants to qualified Japantown community organizations.
The Japantown Foundation board of directors expresses its appreciation to the Hotel Kabuki and to Craig Waterman for continuing this valuable partnership. Craig is also a member of our foundation board.
