President's Message

Please accept my heartfelt THANKS to
all the members of our Board of Directors, and to our longtime sponsors
and supporters of the Aurora Foundation through our 18 years.
We are so grateful to Saori Yuki & Sachiko Yasuda
for the Aurora Fall Benefit Concert last October in LA.
The Concert was amazing!
It was truly a wonderful and unforgettable performance.
They are a treasure and we feel very honored!

We are starting our 19th year, and it is our great pleasure to announce
our four Scholarships and Grants including
Japanese Language Scholarships, Aurora Challenge Grant,
and All-USA High School Japanese Language Speech Contest in 2017.

I hope you are as excited about the coming year as we are!
We're looking forward to seeing you all again this year.
