If you've been meaning to give to the Japan disaster-relief effort and haven't had the chance, Saturday is as good a time as any. The ScionLAB (in the Crossroads District behind Grinders at 18th Street and Oak) is hosting a fundraiser for the American Red Cross Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief effort.
You can give a donation at the door, buy $5 raffle tickets (with the chance to win two tickets to every show at Crossroads KC this summer) or bid in a silent auction for art and other creative works. All of the proceeds will go to the Red Cross. The event goes from 1 to 6 p.m. You can also give directly to the American Red Cross by clicking here.
