Oops I had not noticed this thread and posted in another one:

I did not manage to go watch the show but read tons of positive reports by those who did!

Kozuka, who proposed and carried out this fund-raising event, even handcrafted 8 donation boxes by himself. (pic: http://weblog.ctv.co.jp/ehonda/tFsHDUE) Also he must have been done some of the organizing work BEFORE the world championships!

Akiko posted some shots of their after-party to her blog, and says they all danced to Mambo as Dai's SP choreography, from start to finish! http://ameblo.jp/suzuki-akko/entry-10885001191.html Check out the last picture of the blog entry LOL
