“This is one of the most important events of the Cherry Blossom Festival that pays homage to the well deserving seniors in their respective communities for all their hard work and dedication,” – Allen Okamoto.

The seniors in our community have paved the way for future generations and left their mark in their communities and professions. The annual Senior Appreciation Brunch will honor several outstanding Japanese Americans for their personal achievements and service to the Japanese and Japanese American communities. The honorees are nominated by various senior citizen centers and community organizations. These individuals have distinguished themselves by making significant contributions in their communities and society at large.

The San Francisco Nikkei Lions Club and Kimochi Inc. are privileged to serve as co-hosts for the Senior Appreciation Brunch.
