Everything is energy— especially the food we eat, so being invited to enjoy sushi with a purpose held a special place in my heart.
Enter RA Sushi. With their dining experience, Nicky’s Week, they’ve been able to raise nearly $2 million for St. Jude. The event honors the life of Nicky Malliard who lost his battle with cancer in 2005, nephew of one of the owners of RA Sushi, and when patrons order items from this special menu, $2 goes directly to St. Jude’s lifesaving work.
If you’re not aware, the mission of St. Jude’s Research Hospital is to treat and defeat childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. No child is denied treatment at St. Jude due to inability to pay. Personal and corporate donations and fundraising events such as RA Sushi’s RA’ckin’ for Nicky help make sure that the amazing work done by St. Jude continues.
Visiting the event, I was captivated by how the flavors worked together for the items on their St. Jude Menu especially the tacos (and cocktails!)
The Mango Shrimp Roll, RA’ckin Tacos, and Coconut Creme Brûlée are all featured items on the menu and while your elevating your tastebuds, you’ll also be working with such a noble cause and making a difference in places that reach beyond the dinner table.
No matter what you decide to order from the special menu when you visit RA Sushi, remember to be and give good energy— there’s a world, continent, country, region, state, city, community, family, and person that needs it!
With over 23 locations to choose from, you have several chances and opportunities to support.
