Original American-style sushi restaurant supporting aspiring musicians with check donation

Rock N Roll Sushi Founders Open Concert with Check Presentation to Reach and TeachMobile, AL  (RestaurantNews.comRock N Roll Sushi wrapped up their initial Reach and Teach fundraiser with a check donation for $16,500 on Thursday, at Jackson High School in Jackson, Ala. Rock N Roll Sushi just launched their relationship this fall with the non-profit as a way to support student musicians and entrepreneurs, while staying true to their brand’s culture and love of music.

Rock N Roll Sushi founders Gerri and Lance Hallmark attended the Reach and Teach Concert at Jackson High to present the donation and meet the students who participated in the semester-long Reach and Teach program.

Rock N Roll Sushi is passionate about giving back to students in the communities they touch. Throughout October, “Helping Guitar Picks” were sold at all restaurant locations across the country. All proceeds are being donated to Reach and Teach, to further their goal of providing unique, project based learning opportunities to students. Through the program, students work to promote and execute a concert on their school campus. All proceeds students raise from their concert are donated back to their schools.

Reach and Teach is a nonprofit focused on providing authentic, educational experiences to students across the globe. While the program is available to all students, it resonates with students who typically struggle to engage in traditional classes and provides a purposeful opportunity for students to immerse themselves in their learning.

About Rock N Roll Sushi

Founded in 2010 by husband-and-wife duo Lance and Gerri Mach Hallmark in Mobile, Alabama, Rock N Roll Sushi is the original American-style sushi restaurant founded on great food, true love and rock n’ roll music. It’s the only theme-restaurant in the world where local and loyal fans can experience the rock they love and the rolls they love with the ones they love. The menu is broken down by Opening Acts, Classics, Green Room, Headliners (with Raw Tracks), Back Stage Hibachi, Kids Rock and After Party, with Rock N Roll Sushi’s greatest hits – like Crispy Wontons, Punk Rock Roll, VIP Roll and Hibachi – stealing the show. From humble beginnings in a modest 1000-square-foot space tucked inside the Mobile Mall, Rock N Roll Sushi has rapidly expanded to encompass more than 60 locations across the Southeastern U.S. in just a decade.
