DENVER (May 3, 2011) — Nan Desu Kan (NDK) is proud to announce the success of NDK’s Rave2Save, a one-night-only fundraiser to benefit the Japanese Red Cross. The event raised a total of $13,440, which includes the dollar-for-dollar match by the Rocky Mountain Anime Association (RMAA), the parent nonprofit organization of NDK.

“Our goal is to help Japan however we can, while it’s still fresh in everyone’s minds,” said Amanda Liebermann, executive director of RMAA.

Rave2Save Japan also featured DJ Bullock, a silent auction and traditional Japanese games kingyo-sukui (goldfish-scooping).

The RMAA would also like to recognize the numerous contributions from the community, including the Denver Marriott Tech Center for donating the space; retail store Gimme Anime (; George Robbert for the highest individual donation, and for organizing the silent auction; DJ RJ and Phaze Nightclub for holding a previous, unaffiliated special event in Loveland, Colo. and donating the proceeds to Rave2Save; the guest DJs and the NDK and hotel staff.

The 15th NDK is Sept. 9-11, 2011 at the sold-out Denver Marriott Tech Center.
