Nicky's Week at RA Sushi commemorates the loss of 13 year old Nicholas, nephew of one of the restaurant's founders, to brain cancer. As such, every restaurant in the Scottsdale, Arizona-based, 22 location, nationwide chain participates in a week of charity fund raising, and our South Miami outpost will do the same. All restaurant proceeds from select menu items will benefit St. Jude Children's Hospital, a highly regarded pediatric treatment and research facility. Ra has donated over $400,000 since 2005 and hopes to raise $110,000 this year. Nicky's Week runs from May 24th - 30th. Here are the events that will be taking place.
