This year at Kimochi has been fast and furious. We have focused
on many projects to outreach, fundraise and provide a continuum
of care and support for seniors and their caregivers. Many of
our recent activities and events are featured in this newsletter:
Sansei Live!, Show ‘n Shine Car Show, Golf Tournament and the
Kimochi San Mateo Capital Campaign fundraiser. This fall, we
also replaced some furnishings at Kimochi Home and the seniors
who participate in our daycare activities are enjoying the results.
Additionally, our Nutrition Program chef has incorporated new
menu items into the weekday meals and our seniors like the
variety -- along with their old favorites, hot bowls of udon, unagi
over rice and sukiyaki.

Sansei Live! Is•Sho-Ni
On Saturday, October 18, Sansei Live! celebrated its 31st year
as a premiere Kimochi-kai fundraising event. Thank you to
all who came out to support this event. This year Sansei Live!
returned to Japantown to the Hotel Kabuki to again, be one of
Kimochi’s most popular and important fundraisers. It is truly
a multi-generational good time. This year over 450 Kimochi
supporters and party goers turned out to enjoy dancing to
the music of the Bay Area’s best party bands Rendezvous and
Big City Revue, and the upstairs Yonsei Lounge featured DJ’s
The Les and John Jow. Also featured was the popular line
dancing activity led by Al Kitashima and Darlene Masamori.
Jana Katsuyama from KTVU Fox 2 News hosted the evening’s
festivities and set the tone for an enjoyable evening.
like to thank the stellar organizing committee headed by Kelly
Mayeda, chairperson, with Kenny Watanabe, Kyle Kuniyoshi,
Richard Jue, Mary Ishisaki, Ellen Kiyomizu, and Cindy Chen.
As always, the many volunteers including those from Asian
American Recovery Services provided invaluable help. The
2014 Cherry Blossom Queen Court also graciously contributed
their services and upbeat spirits to make the evening a great
success.
The Sansei Live theme, “Is•Sho-Ni (Coming Together),” is
meant to reflect Kimochi’s efforts to connect all generations
of the Japanese American community and all those who
support Kimochi’s programs and services in the common goal
of providing culturally sensitive care for seniors. Sansei Live!
2014 was certainly a fine example of that “kimochi.”
Kimochi thanks the many friends and volunteers who
supported the event, but in particular the organization would

“I moved to San Francisco from Chicago two months ago and wanted
to connect with the Japanese Community here. I saw a poster about
Kimochi and wanted to help. They provide great services to seniors.
This experience has made me interested in Social Work. I enjoy coming
to help once a week with my 9 month old son.”
