Smile Kids Japan Charity Concert
The Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme Alumni Association (JETAA) Ottawa will be hosting a charity concert at the Black Sheep Inn on May 24th, 2012 to help raise money for Smile Kids Japan, and the Tohoku Kids Project. Jordan Patrick, a Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme alumnus, will open the show with his mix of indie and modern folk music. Headlining the event will be the Hornettes who will keep the energy peaked and revive classic Motown, soul and funk sounds that will leave you sweaty and satisfied. The Hornettes formed in Ottawa in 2010, and since then have developed a loyal following of music lovers drawn to their ability to keep the dance floor moving. The band consists of two female front women, Anna and Irina, backed by a hot horn section and the classic trio of guitar, drums and bass.
A shuttle bus will be provided from the corner of York Street and Dalhousie Street at 6:30pm to the Black Sheep Inn, and will return once the concert ends. Tickets for the show and space on shuttle service are limited, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Smile Kids Japan
Smile Kids Japan and Living Dreams are two NPOs focused on supporting children who rely on orphanages for care and support. We have formed a partnership to provide immediate and long-term material and emotional support to orphanages, in Tohoku and other areas, directly and indirectly affected by the devastating earthquake and tsunami. We will provide orphanages with necessities and services to help children regain a sense of stability in their lives and move past the tragedy they’ve endured to build healthy and happy futures (http://www.smilekidsjapan.org/).
