Fundraiser For Corbett Family
May 15th | We’re halfway through the month and the Corbett Family fundraiser. We’re so honoured and proud of all the amazing Kinjo customers that have helped support this great cause. We still have a long way to go to hit our goal of $40,000 so please keep up the good work!
We kindly ask for your help in a time of need in assisting us to raise funds for a former Kinjo associate who recently suffered a sudden and tragic loss. Saori came to Canada from Japan on a holiday visa and met Chris Corbett from Nova Scotia and they married in 2005. Saori’s dream of having a family and life in Canada came to an abrupt halt when Chris passed away on March 9, 2018 at the young age of 38. He left behind his wife Saori and their four children, Jason (12), James (11), Daniel (8), and Hana (3). With no life insurance and immediate relatives here in Canada, Saori will need all the help and support she can get from friends and people like you.
We are hoping to raise over $40,000 from May 1st 2018 to May 31st 2018. This will help cover immediate expenses for the Corbett family and assist Saori in the financial challenges ahead.
Kinjo Sushi & Grill will donate 50% of all the sales for every Salmon Sashimi sold from all 5 Kinjo locations to the Corbett family. As a gesture of appreciation to all our amazing Kinjo customers in helping the cause, Kinjo will add an additional piece of Salmon Sashimi per order. We would like to clarify that there will be no profits made on Kinjo’s behalf, we are simply covering food costs (excluding labor).
