Hard Rock donates funds for the elimination of the consequences of the earthquake in Hokkaido

18 September 2018

Hard Rock International has committed $100,000 to the Japanese Red Cross fund to help with the aftermath of the Hokkaido earthquake.

As a result of seismic activity, more than 40 people died, many were injured.

CEO of the Asian section of Hard Rock Edward Tracy expressed his condolences over the tragedy, and also showed hope for an early restoration of the island.

Despite periodic cataclysms, the main task of the Japanese branch of Hard Rock to date is to obtain a license to build a casino resort in the city of Tomakomai, Hokkaido.

"We are 100% interested in Hokkaido. We received offers from other places, but we politely refused, because we want to be based here," - Tracy said.

In late summer, Hard Rock International said it was going to open a hotel in the capital of Ireland.
