RA Sushi, a restaurant with 25 locations across the country, is stepping up in the fight against breast cancer. They are partnering with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) for the month of October to raise funds to raise awareness of and fight this disease.
Under the theme, “One Glass. One Roll. One Hope.”
RA Sushi has pledged to donate 100 percent of its profits from the sales of its ONEHOPE Wine and Pink Roll combination. This is a unique special, which includes a glass of ONEHOPE Chardonnay and a Pink Roll– which has shrimp, kani kama crab mix, sriracha, lettuce, avocado and cucumber in pink soy paper and served with strawberry sauce. The cost of the special is $15.
ONEHOPE Wine, the company that produces the Chardonnay being used in the special, donates 50 percent of its profits to the ONEHOPE Foundation, which support a variety of charities, including the NBCF. So, with this selection for the special, with each purchase, NBCF receives an additional donation.
The RA Sushi location in Baltimore has added a twist. Those patrons who dine on the ONEHOPE and check in at the restaurant on FOURSQUARE will receive a pink breast cancer bracelet. “When we first launched the ONEHOPE combo, Baltimore fell in love with the Pink Roll and the cause,” said RA Sushi general manager Scott Bernas in a press release. “We're happy to bring it back for another season and I know our customers are eager to support it again.”
The funds raised for the NBCF will be used to support the organization's mission of saving lives by supporting early cancer detection and providing free detection services to those who need it.
