I donated in support of this campaign.
The Japanese Friendship Garden is a very unique and wonderful space in Silicon Valley. Amid the frenzy of activity and industry that characterizes life in our community, this space is tranquil, peaceful, and ideal for escape and reflection. Beyond its beauty, this park is a gift from one of our sister city's, Okayama, Japan.
The two cities are actually celebrating the 60-year Anniversary of the relationship. During that time, this garden has hosted millions of visitors who enjoyed its serenity, as well as thousands of weddings, receptions, family gatherings and other special occasions.
The flooding in 2017 has had a profound impact on the space, including several damaging the Tea House, which has been the site of our annual Summer Soiree fundraising event. We need to help restore this community treasure. Your donations will help.
