Japanese Relief Fundraiser at Oxbow - Sunday, March 20

The devastation in Japan due to the earthquake, tsunami and on-going nuclear crisis is horrific.  The images on television and on-line are heartbreaking.

Our friends at the Napa Valley Unity League are working with the fine merchants and purveyors at the Oxbow Public Market (610 & 644 First Street in Napa) to help raise funds to assist with the Japanese relief efforts.

So, here's the mission troops - come to the Oxbow Public Market on Sunday, March 20 between 3 and 7 pm.  Here's what will be happening:
  • a number of fine Oxbow merchants will be donating a portion of their proceeds to the American Red Cross on behalf of Japanese relief efforts.  Signs will be posted to let you know which merchants are participating.
  • folks from the Unity League will be soliciting donations to help the people of Japan.
  • there will even be raffle prizes and some live entertainment!
In addition to attending the event, here are some other ways to help:
  • volunteer to sell raffle tickets
  • volunteer to walk around the market with a collection bucket
  • donate a raffle item
Contact Deb Stallings at (707) 738-4826 for more information or to volunteer/donate.
