Densho would like to ask you to consider being a Table Caption for this year's Sushi & Sake Gala on November 10, 2011. Being a Table Captain is a fun and easy way to support our organization.
What is a Table Captain?Table Captains actively support the fundraising event by committing to work to fill a table for the event. You can do so as an individual, a couple or a group of a few friends. A table has ten (10) seats for your family, friends, colleagues and neighbors to share the evening's fun with you. Please contact the Special Event Manager to become a Table Captain this year.
How do I fill a table?Your personal invitation is the key to filling your table. We have a sample invitation for download. Please extend your invitation to those who might be interested in joining you at your table on November 10th. Fall is a busy season with events and pre-holiday activities. Getting on your guests' schedules as soon as possible will help you fill your table. It usually takes some follow-up to remind people about the event.
How much are the tickets?Tickets are $175 each.
How do we purchase the tickets?Tickets will be available online for you and your guests. Please ask your guests to provide your name as the "Table Captain" when purchasing tickets. If your guests do not provide your name, we cannot guarantee them a seat at your table.
You can also mail a check (payable to Densho) to:
1416 S Jackson St.
Seattle, WA 98144
Please ask your guest to provide your name as their Table Captain.
Table Captains can also purchase ten tickets, collect payment and contact information from guests and mail them to Densho when the table is filled.
What happens if I cannot fill my table?We would like to ask you to try as hard as possible to fill your table, but you will not have to pay for unsold seats. Smaller groups might be combined or seats filled with individual ticket holders.
What does Densho do?Densho is an award winning 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the stories of the Japanese American Community. Densho offers an educational online archive of Japanese American History to educators and the general public. We interview people who were incarcerated during WWII and preserve their stories for posterity, and our website (www.densho.org) contains historical photos and documents pertaining to Japanese American history. We also work with Washington and California State to develop curriculum on civil rights for elementary, middle and high schools. Proceeds from this event will be used to help with the education work of the organization including collecting many more stories waiting to be heard.
