Calling all winter sports enthusiasts, humanitarians, and sushi lovers; the Fishlanthropy for Fives fundraiser will be held October 25, 2019 from 6 p.m to 10 p.m. at Sushi Yoshi in Stowe, VT. Benefitting High Fives Foundation, a nonprofit that provides resources and support to athletes who may have suffered a life-altering injury, Fishlanthropy for Fives will be a night of giving, delicious food, and fun with local celebrities.
Vermont and outdoor celebrities will be there in full force. Nicknamed FISH, local personalities attending will include the founder of High Fives Foundation, employees of regional breweries, founders of local sports clubs, outdoor brand reps, mayors, artists, moms, Paralympians, ski celebrities, High Fives athletes, and so many more.
Not only will there by media opportunities, but there will also be a fortune cookie raffle, beat the dealer activity, and High Fives merchandise for sale. Sushi Yoshi will be serving delicious Asian fusion and sushi dinners for regular prices during Fishlanthropy for Fives. The event has secured a $10,000 dollar-for-dollar match from an anonymous donor on funds raised the night of the event. 25% of sales and 100% of tips will go to the High Fives Foundation.
High Fives Foundation is a nonprofit based in Truckee, California that focuses on preventing life-changing injuries and providing resources and hope if they happen. It was established as a way to “pay-it-forward” to help injured individuals and veterans by founder, Roy Tuscany, after his own recovery from a spinal cord injury. Money raised supports a variety of High Fives endeavors such as the purchase of rehabilitative and adaptive equipment, as well as funding alternative healing and therapies.
Sponsors of the Fishlanthropy for Fives include Sushi Yoshi, VT North Ski Shops, The Alchemist Brewing, Ski The East, iShare, New Belgium Brewing & Fat Tire, Darn Tough Vermont Socks, Stowe Cider, Smith Optics, Rome SDS, Look Bindings, Volkl Skis, Skida Headwear & Accessories, CORK Wine Bar and Market, Ski Essentials, Tito’s Vodka & FISHERS ISLAND LEMONADE.
Excited to bring the community of my home state together to raise funds for High Fives athletes that are in the New England Area. Come out to Stowe and meet these local celebrities that are High Fives athletes.
