Mixologists Xania Woodman and Earl Shelton raised $1,200 in a mixologist battle on May 28 at RA Sushi Bar Restaurant in Las Vegas to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
For one hour, Woodman and Shelton made as many drinks as possible for patrons, with all sales and tips going to St. Jude. Woodman was named the winner after raising approximately $750 for the charity.
The contest is part of the Fifth Annual Nicky's Week fundraiser, a week-long fundraising effort to benefit children's cancer treatment and research. Nicky's Week was created in honor of Nicholas "Nicky" Mailliard, a nephew of one of RA Sushi's founders who lost a battle with brain cancer in 2005 at age 13.
