Full Sail Hosts Ganbare Nippon Event to Aid Japan’s Earthquake and Tsunami Victims

One month after the initial devastation brought about by the earthquake, tsunami, and continuing after-shocks in Japan, Full Sail hosted an event organized by local Japanese nationals and former residents of the country to help those in need.

Ganbare Nippon (a Japanese sentiment expressed when someone needs their spirits lifted) took place in the Full Sail Live Venue and featured live music, storytelling, food, artwork, and other celebrations of Japanese culture and heritage. Featuring performances by ZEROtaiko, Nova Era, Wah Lum Kung Fu, and Japanese storyteller Karin Amano, the night helped raise awareness Japan’s plight. 100 percent of the donations went directly to the Red Cross Japan Pacific Tsunami Relief Fund.
