Arizona-based Ra Sushi is donating 100 percent of its profits from all its restaurants Friday and Saturday to help the families of the 19 Prescott firefighters killed in the Yarnell Hill Fire.

All six Ra locations, including at La Encantada, are participating in the fundraiser, which runs from open to close both days, a Ra spokeswoman said. All menu items and takeout orders are included.

The proceeds will go to the 100 Club of Arizona's Survivors Fund, in memory of the Granite Mountain Hotshots. Nineteen of the elite firefighting crew's members were killed June 30 when fire from the Yarnell Hill blaze overtook them.

The nonprofit 100 Club of Arizona provides financial aid to families of public safety officers and firefighters who are seriously injured or killed in the line of duty. Ra Sushi, 2905 E. Skyline Drive, will be open 11 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday.

• Acacia Real Foods & Cocktails, 3001 E. Skyline Drive, also is raising funds for the Granite Mountain Hotshots. The restaurant will kick in 10 percent of its lunch, dinner and brunch receipts from Friday through Sunday to the 100 Club of Arizona. Acacia is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. those days.
