In anticipation of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, as well as the values and ideals of Olympism, the 2019 ACCJ Charity Ball: A Gold Medal Evening successfully raised more than ¥7 million in much-needed funds for local charities.

The Charity Ball Committee, together with volunteers and members of the community, rose to the occasion in the true spirit of the Olympics. From the delicious Greek cuisine and premium wines to the fabulous entertainment and great auction prizes, it was an inspiring night to remember. In sincere appreciation of our very supportive sponsors and guests, everyone’s contributions will make a meaningful difference in our ability to help those in need.

With the expertise of Thana Fragkis of Nostimia, the Hilton Tokyo did an amazing job with the Greek-inspired menu, complemented by the fine wines from faithful wine purveyors Hotei and Iconic—chosen during our annual wine taste-off—as well as craft beer donated by Whisk-e Ltd.

Entertainment inspired by past Olympic themes, including the amazing piano skills of Steve Wilkerson, a soulful performance by Gospel Square, and the high-energy of dance band The Conductors, completed the wonderfully festive evening.

This was truly an event in which our community pulled together to raise funds and give back to the community, a core pillar of the ACCJ. Thank you to everyone involved for making the ACCJ Charity Ball 2019 a success!
