Having a summer sushi party has become a tradition to raise funds for the Nathan Yip Foundation. This year, gracious hosts Jimmy and Linda Yip decided to open their home for a feast that included several courses to please the palate. Amazing a la carte sushi and sashimi, including the highest-grade fish, was donated by Seattle Fish Company.
Guest chef Miki Hashimoto of Tokio Restaurant in LoDo created a sushi boat with assorted sushi rolls. Gyoza, kara-age, seaweed salad, curry scallops, shrimp tempura udon, beef tataki and tuna salad were prepared on site, much to the delight of guests.
Seattle Fish Company CEO James Iacino was a classmate of Nathan Yip at Kent Denver and has been a loyal supporter of the foundation.
Also attending were Gary and Helen Newcomb, past NYF President David Thomson, Director of Philanthropy at Children’s Hospital Anne Hanson and husband David, Laurie Leder and Gary Watkins, Donna Kearns, Charlie Wilson, Carol Wolf, Channel 7 news anchor Anne Trujillo and husband Mike Kalush, who is NYF president.

Kalush announced exciting news, including STEM education and project/problem solving in Eads schools. Also, the NYF Center Consolidated Schools Home Visit Program in the San Luis Valley.
Last year, the NYF Endowment Fund was started in hopes of keeping the dreams of Nathan Yip alive for many years to come. Gifts for this legacy plan may be discussed by contacting Tarika Cefkin at 303-817-8400 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
