MAKE A DIFFERENCE- Linda & ANPO
LINDA HOAGLUND, who has always been supporting MSTERIO (as some of you remember, she was a guest for MSTERIO TEENS!), had a fund raising event for her upcoming movie, ANPO, at one of my friends’ apartment.
About 100 guests enjoyed the food from OMEN, one of the most famous restaurants in NY, as well as wines and drinks.
The live music with the guitar and accordion created a great atmosphere.
The couple, who own this spacious apartment, offered this space with no charge, and also bought all the drinks for the event.
Furthermore, the food from the OMEN restaurant was on the owner of OMEN. Surprisingly many people contributed and worked all together to support Linda and her movie.
As a result, the event raised as much as $3,500! This is exactly a “Make a difference” event and I cannot help but appreciate it.
Linda will soon finish filming her movie, and the magazine AERA will actually feature an article on the movie this week.
In addition, there is going to be a symposium at Yasuda Kodo, Tokyo University, on Tuesday, June 15, titled “60 Years of the Record and Memory of ANPO,” (“60-nen Anpo Toso no Kiroku to Kioku”) and Linda will be one of the presenters.

A few MSTERIO members are going to be there to assist the event, as well.
