Fishlanthropy for Fives| October 16th| Sushi Yoshi in Stowe, VT| Proceeds benefit High Fives Foundation
On October 16, 2015, the High Fives Foundation will return to Sushi Yoshi of Stowe for the 2nd annual Fishlanthropy For Fives event. It is an unusual fundraising format for a charity dinner. There is no entrance fee for the guests, and the menu is priced the same as normal. There will be a BIG cast of Vermont celebrities in attendance, but they won’t be eating alongside everyone — they will be the servers and waitstaff.
Sushi Yoshi donates 25% of the overall sales back to the Foundation, as well as 100% of the tips for the night. Other funds will be raised in the fortune cookie raffle, bobbing for ducks and chances to win gift cards.
“The celebrities, we’re calling them ‘The Fish.’ They are hilarious as the waiters and waitresses,” said Esbert Cardenas, president of iShare Works, a sponsor of Fishlanthropy. “Some of them know what they’re doing, but some of them don’t. It’s so entertaining that they can’t help but earn big tips for the High Fives Foundation.” iShare works is a local company that makes promotional materials for for-profit companies, with 10% of sales going back to charities like the High Fives Foundation and others.
