Golden Ticket Toy Drive

Golden Ticket Toy Drivede Vere’s Irish Pub, Mikuni Japanese Restaurant & Bar, and DeMarcus Cousins have joined charitable forces this holiday season to create the first Golden Ticket Toy Drive—an effort to help local kids in need and reward donors for their generosity!

From November 29 to December 9, all Mikuni and de Vere’s restaurants will be accepting donations of new toys and personal items for the Kylee Lillich Charitable Giving Tree, a non-profit 501c3, all-volunteer local charity that helps children year-round. In return for the charitable gesture, everyone who donates will be given an envelope, which may contain a golden ticket good for amazing prizes! 

On December 10, all lucky golden ticket holders will present their ticket at Mikuni Midtown to retrieve one of several prizes, awarded by Mikuni founder Taro Arai (the Willy Wonka of sushi). There will also be a kick-off event at de Vere’s Irish Pub in Sacramento on November 26 from 2-3pm. NBA star and Golden Ticket Toy Drive supporter DeMarcus Cousins will be at both events to promote the cause.

Those who cannot make a toy or item donation, but would still like to contribute, can make a cash donation at www.goldenticketca.com. (No golden ticket entry for online donations.)

Thanks to the Kylee Lillich Charitable Giving Tree, all donations will go to children who are homeless, hospitalized, grieving the loss of a parent, brother, or sister, or simply in need of basic items. In its 11th year, the local charity makes wishes come true for nearly 700 grieving, needy, and hospitalized children each year.

 Drop off locations:

- Mikuni Midtown
- Mikuni Elk Grove
- Mikuni Fair Oaks
- Mikuni Roseville
- Mikuni Davis
- Kaizen in Fountains
- Taro’s in Arden Fair Mall
- deVere’s Irish Pub Sacramento

Meet Our Father-Daughter St. Baldrick’s Shavees!

One of the things we love most about St. Baldrick’s Day is the outpouring of support that comes from our communities. One very special instance of that is this awesome father-daughter duo that will be shaving their heads together to raise funds for childhood cancer.

Meet Stewart and Victoria Savage from Davis. Stewart is the Executive Director of Davis Downtown, and, along with his daughter, is championing a big effort to raise funds for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

“Fighting cancer in children and young adults is important for both of us,” say Stewart. “For me, it means that I am helping families enjoy a few more precious moments together. For my daughter, it means that she and her friends will have a greater opportunity to grow up and experience all that life has to offer.”

Both Stewart and Victoria will be shaving their heads at our Davis Pub on March 13th—but in the meantime, they need your help!

We encourage you to make a donation to their fundraising pages to show your support!
 
Visit http://www.stbaldricks.org/participants/stewartsavage  to donate to Stewart or http://www.stbaldricks.org/participants/victoriasavage  to donate to Victoria.

Of course, they would love to have you cheer them on as they have their heads shaved, too. Come to de Vere’s Davis and see them get buzzed for a great cause! The action starts at 5pm.

Cheers to Stewart and Victoria!
