What is Sushi for a Cure?
Cancer affects all of us.
Sushi for a Cure is a labor of love, created to celebrate those who've fought and/or are fighting cancer, while also fighting back.
We're celebrating our 10th annual event in Portland in 2022 benefitting the American Cancer Society, and we hope you will join us.
For more about the history of this event, visit our Family page.
Together with my daughter, Sophia, and son, Jared, and with the help of many
dear friends, we strive to continue the rich tradition of creating a wonderful event in support of a great and impactful cause.
What can I expect at the event?
This will be an intimate gathering where you will eat all the sushi you possibly can, artistically prepared by Chef Ramon from Hawaii (don't be discouraged if you don't like sushi, there will be plenty of vegan and vegetarian food). You can also enjoy cocktails, listen to cool music, and chat with interesting people!
Of course, the goal is to raise money for the American Cancer Society, and there will be several options to do that, including both silent and live auctions, plus the center piece of the evening - Fund a Cure - where you'll have the opportunity to donate at varying levels. Get ready for a fun evening!
