Don't miss the 10th annual Nicky's Week at RA Sushi — good food and good fun for a great cause!

Dine at RA Sushi between May 25 and 31, and the restaurant will donate 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of special Nicky's Week menu items to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Rich Howland, one of the founders of RA Sushi, created Nicky's Week to promote the research and treatment being done at St. Jude. The event is named in memory of Howland's nephew, Nicky Mailliard, who was treated at St. Jude for ependymoma, a brain tumor.

When doctors discovered the tumor in December 2001, Nicky's parents turned to St. Jude for their son's treatment. The hospital was able to put the cancer in remission, but only for a short time. By September 2004, it had returned even more aggressively. In February 2005, at age 13, Nicky lost his battle.

"St. Jude played a critical role during Nicky's illness by providing state-of-the-art care and by providing important information to our family. I want to help ensure that the programs at St. Jude remain available to any family that is forced to deal with the extreme heartache associated with the serious illness of a child," Howland said.
