Joint efforts will bring Panasonic's products to #terasakibudokan, Little Tokyo Service Center, set for a grand opening in Spring 2021
NEWARK, N.J., Jan. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --For #Panasonic, a leading global technology company, contribution to society has long been a guiding principle. With this enduring purpose at the heart of its products, solutions and partnerships, today at CES 2021, #Panasonic, together with #sakurakokumai, the first U.S. Olympic karate qualifier, announced they are teaming up to give back to #terasakibudokan, Little Tokyo Service Center.
Kokumai is a member of Team #Panasonic, which is made up of a diverse group of world-renowned athletes and Panasonic's 260,000 plus employees worldwide. The donation to #terasakibudokan, a nonprofit multipurpose sports and activities center in the historic Little Tokyo community of Downtown Los Angeles, includes Panasonic's high-brightness projector (PT-RZ120BU) and two professional displays (TH-86CQ1U/TH-65BFE1W).
"Growing up, my first introduction to karate was at a local recreation center so I know the value of having somewhere to go in the community to be active, especially for youth," said #sakurakokumai. "I am honored to collaborate with #Panasonic to give back to #terasakibudokan, a cultural symbol for the Japanese American community that will give kids a place to exercise their bodies and minds, bring together families and inspire future generations."
"Sakura shares our passion and commitment to societal progress and creating a better life, a better world – empowering communities to move forward by providing them the innovation, tools and technology they need to succeed," said Lauren Sallata, Chief Marketing Officer, #Panasonic Corporation of North America. "Panasonic has long invested in institutions that drive equity and advance the education and development of youth. We could not be more proud to partner with Sakura and support #terasakibudokan, a unique space that reflects our traditional values and creates opportunities for all."
Terasaki Budokan features an indoor gymnasium with two basketball courts, four volleyball courts, a martial arts practice space, an outdoor plaza, and a community room for multipurpose activities like classes and workshops.
"I'm very thankful to #sakurakokumai and #Panasonic for their generous donations to #terasakibudokan. This technology enhances the experience for those enjoying sports and events at our facility. I can't wait to show off the donations at our grand opening when we can safely gather. We'll be watching and cheering on Sakura at the Tokyo Olympic Games" said Ryan Lee, Director of #terasakibudokan.
