Stanford students holding bake sale to benefit Japan

Proceeds from Saturday sale will go to help earthquake and tsunami victims

A bake sale benefiting victims of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan will be held by Stanford students Saturday (March 25) from noon to 3 p.m. at the Clark Center, outside NeXus Cafe, 318 Campus Drive, Stanford University.

All proceeds from the event will go to the Japanese Red Cross. The event is being organized by Stanford medical student Yohko Murakami, who was born and raised in Japan, and her roommate, Joanna Lee.

"Medical and graduate students from the Stanford University School of Medicine will be supplying the baked goods. We currently have 25 bakers and counting," Murakami said.
