OKCD Fundraising Effort

In total, we raised $500.00 from the Suzuki cup ($117 in change), plus a donation of $100.00 making our grand total $600.00.   Rajesh's company then matched $500.00 so we actually raised $1100.  Way to go OKCD!

The money was sent to the Japan America Society where it will help Sendai, Japan, which was one of the hardest hit regions and is also Dallas' sister city. (www.jasdfw.org).
