Everyone is feeling the affects of the recession but its still a good time
to give back a little and enjoy yourself at the same time. In the spirit of
this, I recommend everyone go to RA Sushi between May 24-30 for a little
sushi, sake & good times!
RA Sushi will host its fifth annual “Nicky’s Week” fundraiser May 24 to 30,
to benefit the internationally renowned St. Jude Children’s Research
Hospital. All three Chicagoland RA locations (Gold Coast, Glenview and
Lombard) will donate 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of Edamame,
Tootsy Maki, Shrimp Shumai, FIJI, Red Bull, The Republic of Tea, and select
cocktails, to St. Jude.
Nicky’s Week was developed in memory of longtime St. Jude patient Nicholas"
Nicky” Mailliard, of Scottsdale, who lost a long battle with brain cancer
in February 2005 at the young age of 13. A nephew of one of RA’s founders,
Nicky held a special place in the hearts of RA associates throughout the
organization. RA initiated the fundraiser in honor of Nicky as a way to
further promote the exceptional attention and support provided at no cost to
families of children receiving care at St. Jude.
All donations from the weeklong effort will help pay for St. Jude’s
development of treatment and cures for diseases such as brain tumors,
leukemia, sickle cell disease, and other life-threatening illnesses in
