RA Sushi in South Miami will host its ninth annual “Nicky’s Week” fundraiser from Sunday, May 26, through Saturday, June 1. This week-long campaign benefits kids battling cancer and other illnesses at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. Through community support, St. Jude covers all costs so that no child is denied medical service due to a family’s financial struggles. The South Miami restaurant and bar will donate 100 percent of proceeds from the sale of a variety of menu items and beverages to St. Jude to help support the hospital’s lifesaving mission.
The special Nicky’s Week menu includes: Edamame, Tootsy Maki, Shrimp Nigiri, Pork Gyoza, Chicken Yakitori and Garlic Citrus Yellowtail Tapas, plus a variety of select beverages.
Nicky’s Week was developed in memory of St. Jude patient Nicholas “Nicky” Mailliard, of Scottsdale, Ariz., who lost a long battle with brain cancer in February 2005 at the age of 13. A nephew of one of RA Sushi’s founders, Nicky held a special place in the hearts of RA Sushi associates throughout the organization. RA Sushi initiated the fundraiser to honor the memory of Nicky and to raise awareness and funds for St. Jude, where no child is ever turned away because of a family’s inability to pay for medical treatments. Since its inception, Nicky’s Week has raised more than $1 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
St. Jude doctors and researchers freely share their research with the medical community, so every child saved at St. Jude means thousands more saved worldwide. The hospital has international reach and has treated children from all 50 states, including Florida.
