Chicago (I-Newswire) October 29, 2012 - On Wednesday, November 7th, Japanese American Connect (JAConnect) and Kamehachi Restaurant will host "A Toast to Japan: Sake, Shochu, and Beer Tasting event" to benefit a 65-year old local non-profit social service agency, the Japanese American Service Committee.

The evening will bring together young professionals in the Chicago area to experience Japanese-crafted liquors and beers from various Japanese provinces and to sample Kamehachi's meticulously crafted food. Kamehachi will showcase a specialty cocktail featuring Japanese liquor, which will be expertly paired with an oshizushi, a type of pressed sushi, prepared by Executive Sushi Chef Min Kim.

Owners Sharon Perazzoli and Giulia Sindler, are third and fourth generation Japanese-Americans and are proud to be title sponsors for this event. "We are thrilled to support the Japanese American Service Committee through this special young professionals event," said Giulia Sindler. "We will be showcasing some innovative Japanese cocktail and food offerings, all within a fun, social atmosphere that celebrates Japanese-American culture, while supporting the Japanese American Service Committee's longstanding efforts here in Chicago."

'A Toast to Japan' celebrates a long-standing tradition in Japan, where fall marks the beginning of the traditional sake brewing season. Also featured, is the lesser-known Japanese Shochu, which has been described as a vodka because it is distilled from starches such as barley, potato and rice etc. These artisanal liquors are part of the first cultural event for JAConnect, the Japanese American Service Committee's young professional group, whose focus is on building relationships and servicing the community.

"The Japanese American Service Committee is committed to engaging with our community in new ways - through creative events and our newly-created young professional group, JAConnect," said Susan Tybon, CEO, Japanese American Service Committee.

A Toast to Japan: Sake, Shochu and Beer Tasting will run from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM at 1531 N. Wells, Chicago, IL on Wednesday, November 7. Tickets are on sale for $30 at www.jascsaketasting.eventbrite.com. 100% of the net proceeds benefit the Japanese American Service Committee enabling them to continue to provide comprehensive social services such as adult day care, home support, social work, and cultural programming.
