Gwen Stefani's Japanese Tea Party Raises $120,000
Gwen Stefani has raised more than $120,000 for aid efforts in Japan by hosting a Harajuku-themed tea party in California.
The No Doubt star is a longtime fan of Japanese culture and even travelled with a group of Japanese dancers called the Harajuku Girls during her stint as a solo artist.
She was shocked to see the damage caused by the earthquake/tsunami disaster in the country earlier this year and set about making plans to raise money to help.
Stefani hosted a private tea party at the Royal/T Cafe in Culver City, California on Tuesday night to make money for Save the Children's Japan Earthquake Emergency Fund. She auctioned off tickets to the event back in April and gave attendees a special treat by performing with her band during the evening.
Stefani and her guests were joined by her husband and two sons, as well as her parents.
