Raise Money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital with RA Sushi's 9th Annual Nicky's Week, May 26 - June 1
During Nicky's Week, eating edamame and Tootsy maki at Midtown's RA Sushi Bar Restaurant goes straight to helping children at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. From Sunday, May 26 through Saturday, June 1, and now in its ninth year, the annual spring benefit dedicates 100 percent of the proceeds from select menu and drink items to assist kids battling cancer and other deadly diseases. St. Jude's patients receive care regardless of their family's ability to pay. The inspiration behind the effort is Nicky Mailliard, a St. Jude's patient and nephew of one of RA Sushi's founders. The 13-year old inspired many RA Sushi employees during his brave battle against brain cancer in 2005. Since the start of Nicky's Week, RA Sushi has raised more than $1 million for St. Jude's! Now that's a reason to eat out!
