Johnny & Associates announces another “Marching J” fundraising event at Tokyo Dome
Johnny & Associates, Inc. has announced that they will be holding a fundraising event at the Tokyo Dome on March 11th, exactly a year since the 2011 Tohoku earthquake.
Johnny & Associates, Inc. established their disaster relief project called “Marching J” right after the earthquake. They started the project with a big-scaled fundraising event held in front of the First Gymnasium at the Yoyogi National Stadium, which pulled total 389,000 people in 3 days (during April 1st ~ 3rd 2011). They have also held many other supportive activities before, such as holding several charity events, donating daily necessities to the disaster areas, setting a donation box at the concert venues, and holding sales of charity goods, etc.
This upcoming fundraising event will be like the previous one, in which many of Johnny & Associates’ talents will participate in the event, and call for donations. (The talents who won’t be able to participate, due to their schedule, will send video messages, which will be shown on the monitors set at the venue.) The event will be held through 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. (the admission will be closed at 5:00 p.m.), and the entrance fee will be free.
It was also announced that this will be their last fundraising event, and all the money will be donated to the fund that supports children.
