We would like to announce that LeConte Elementary School students in Berkeley will be holding a Bake Sale in front of the Berkeley Bowl Market on Sunday, May 1 starting at 12:00 noon. All proceeds will go toward the Japan Multicultural Relief Fund (JMRF) to support earthquake and tsunami relief efforts in Japan. Please join us.

This fundraising event was conceived and organized by Akira, Marie and Soliah for the Japan Multicultural Relief Fund (JMRF). Akira's grand mother is from Japan and she wanted to be a part of efforts to support the Japanese people during these turbulent times.

All the baked goods are baked and donated by the Scott's Seafood Restaurant in Jack London Square. We greatiously appreciate their generous support and Berkeley Bowl allowing us to use their property for our bake sale.
