In response to the recent Yarnell Hill Fire tragedy that took the lives of 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots, Scottsdale-based RA Sushi Bar Restaurant will be hosting a two-day fundraiser at all six Arizona locations. On Friday, July 12 and Saturday, July 13, from open to close RA Sushi will donate 100 percent of the profits from all menu items sold to the 100 Club of Arizona for its Survivors Fund in memory of the Granite Mountain Hotshots.

The 100 Club of Arizona is a non-profit organization that provides immediate financial assistance to families of public safety officers and firefighters who are seriously injured or killed in the line of duty, and provides resources to enhance their safety and welfare. Profits from all of RA Sushi’s dine-in food items, beverages and alcohol will be included in the fundraiser, in addition to all take-out orders. Popular signature items from RA Sushi include the Viva Las Vegas Roll, Tootsy Maki, Crispy Spicy Tuna and cocktails such as the Blushing Geisha, Strawberry Saketini and Umami Punch. Money raised from the two-day fundraiser will benefit the 100 Club’s Survivors Fund, which will assist survivors, cover travel expenses for the family members of the victims, and replace safety equipment for the Prescott Fire Department, among other needs.
