2021 Japan Society "Award of Honor" Gala

Seeking Volunteers!

Our 35th “Award of Honor” Gala is approaching, and we need your help!

The Japan Society is currently seeking volunteers for our upcoming Gala on November 19, 2021! This year’s Award of Honor goes to Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited and Moderna Inc., two companies which have made tremendous contributions to the lives of many people amid the Coronavirus pandemic, and furthered the US-Japan relationship with a deep understanding of the importance of connection.

Please help us honor these two companies by assisting with setup/cleanup, payments, ushering, and the live and silent auctions. You will get to meet high profile people from the Bay Area and abroad, make friends with other volunteers, hear exciting speeches from our honorees and other influential individuals, witness the elegant décor of the historical War Memorial Opera House, and enjoy a gourmet dinner at this evening event.

We need your support to make the night a success! Kindly let us know your availability between 2:00 and 10:00 PM on November 19th, the day of the Gala. (You don’t have to be available for the entire time to help out. Feel free to jump in whenever is best for you!) Please contact if you are interested or have any questions.

Gala Date: Friday, November 19, 2021
Location: War Memorial Opera House
301 Van Ness Ave, San Francisco, CA 94102
