TUCSON, Ariz. (Oct. 15, 2010) – In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, RA Sushi Bar Restaurant at La Encantada is offering a wine and sushi special to benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF). From Friday, Oct. 15 to Monday, Nov. 15, RA Sushi will donate 100 percent of the profits from the sale of the ONEHOPE Wine and Pink Roll combination to the foundation.
The NBCF’s mission is to save lives through early cancer detection and to provide mammograms to those in need. ONEHOPE is a California wine company that donates half of its profits to a variety of causes, including the fight against breast cancer.
The ONEHOPE Wine and Pink Roll special will be offered for $15 at RA Sushi locations and includes a glass of ONEHOPE 2009 California Chardonnay and the Pink Roll. The roll features shrimp, kani kama crab mix and sriracha combined with lettuce, avocado and cucumber wrapped in pink soy paper and served with a pink ribbon of strawberry sauce.
RA Sushi Bar Restaurant locations in Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Nevada, and Texas are participating in the fundraiser. The Tucson RA Sushi is located in the La Encantada shopping center at 2905 E. Skyline Dr., Tucson, Ariz., 85718.
