As part of its annual Nicky’s Week celebration and ongoing collaboration with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, RA Sushi chefs will roll out a special new menu featuring more than a dozen sushi and Asian fusion dishes and drinks. During the week of May 22-28, 100 percent of sales from this special menu will be donated to St. Jude’s to help find cures for childhood cancers and other life-threatening diseases.
The 13th annual Nicky’s Week honors the life of Nicholas Mailliard, who lost his battle with pediatric cancer in 2005 at the age of 13. Nicky was the nephew of Rich Howland, one of RA Sushi’s founders. His battle with cancer deeply impacted the RA Sushi family and inspired the annual event benefiting St. Jude.
RA Sushi aims to raise more than $200,000 this year, bringing the total contributions to over $2 million since Nicky’s Week’s inception in 2005. Funds raised through events like Nicky’s Week help ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because St. Jude believes all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Supporters can help the cause by visiting RA Sushi May 22-28 and ordering from the Nicky’s Week menu, including the Tootsy Maki Roll, Garlic Ponzu Yellowtail, ”RA”ckin Shrimp Tacos and Poke Tacos – ten plates in all – along along with nearly a dozen specialty cocktails, wines, beers and non-alcoholic drinks.
Select locations will host additional fundraising events or silent auctions, and all locations will accept cash donations, on behalf of the hospital.
