Fourteen-year-old Arizona native, Nitalia Conti, has been battling a brain tumor for nearly two years and has been in a coma for more than two months. Nitalia has been through a series of treatments and is currently receiving care at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. She is the eldest of three sisters, and the Conti family is struggling financially due to escalating medical bills.

On November 4, RA Sushi at Kierland Commons in Scottsdale will donate 100% of the proceeds from all food and drink specials sold the entire day to Nitalia Conti. Food and drink specials include $4 Kirin or Kirin Light, $6 Kirin or Kirin Light with sake, and $7.75 Tootsy Maki. From 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., for a small donation, guests can have their photo taken with former Arizona Diamondbacks baseball pitcher, Luis Gonzalez. Also, raffle tickets will be sold for gift certificates and prize packages. All money raised will be donated to the Conti family to help fund Nitalia’s care and treatment.
