RA Sushi Debuts Short Order's Winning Sushi Roll to Benefit Homeless Pets
Last month, Short Order's Laine Doss took home top prize in RA's Foodies Show Heart charity competition. Her "Tropical Heat Roll" (tuna, avocado, mango, and jalapeño rolled in rice and seaweed with mango salsa) won big, and half the proceeds from the purchase of the $10 roll will benefit Tri County Humane Society, a no-kill shelter that saves thousands of pets every year.
With avocado as the secret seasonal ingredient, each contestant collaborated with one of RA's chefs to create and name their unique creations. The attending public then tasted the rolls and served as judge and jury in the final tally.
Doss scored the big win, and throughout the month of March, proceeds from her championship roll will go to the charity where she adopted her darling Chihuahua, Dora. Tri County Humane saves the lives of animals in Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Martin counties. So next time you or anyone you know is looking for a new furry friend, that shelter is your best bet.
