Kelowna shopping centre site for Japan relief event

A relief fundraiser for Japan’s earthquake and tsunami victims will take place Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Towne Centre Mall in Kelowna.

There will be an information booth set up and local students from Japan will be on hand to answer questions.

There will also be entertainment, including Kinda Kenny, a tribute artist for Kenny Rogers, and Vilos Granados who will perform Mexican music.

All donations will be turned over to the Red Cross relief effort in Japan.

There will be a flea market during the day and a number of door prizes.

The activities are being organized by International Gateway, a private program that teaches English.
