Sushi and charity…One of my favorite charitable combinations! Starting on Sunday, May 29, on of my favorite sushi outposts, RA Sushi, kicks off “Nicky’s Week,” a fundraiser in support of St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
100% of the proceeds from select menu items will benefit the amazing work being done by this hospital that never charges patients regardless of their ability to pay. Nicky’s Week was developed in memory of St. Jude patient Nicholas “Nicky” Mailliard, the nephew of one of RA’s founder, who lost a long battle with brain cancer in February 2005 at the age of 13. The Nicky’s Week fundraiser has raised over $750,000 for St. Jude since 2005, and they hope to keep that number going and growing this year! The fundraiser goes until Saturday, June 4th, so find your nearest RA location and get your sushi on!
P.S. In support of “Nicky’s Week,” RA Sushi is giving five people the opportunity to win free sushi for a year. Follow them on Twitter to learn more!
