3rd Annual Hoshizora "Starry Skies" Gala
Aozora Community Foundation invites you to our 3rd Annual Hoshizora "Starry Skies" Gala. Come celebrate with us Thursday, April 19th at ShapeShifter Lab in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Grab some drinks, enjoy a variety of Japanese tapas and witness some brilliant performances by some of New York's top artists.

Partake in our incredible silent auction, try your luck on one of our raffle baskets or take home one of our fukubukuro "mystery bags". 

Your ticket purchase will enable us to expand Aozora Community Foundation programming and services for our youth and families. This year, proceeds will go towards finalizing our Japanese lending library, building up our school holiday and summer camp programs for youth, expanding our workshop and class offerings for children and adults, and increasing outreach to the larger Japanese community here in New York.
