Nick Haque Koi Las Vegas Raises Money for Africa

August 17, 2011

Koi Las Vegas, which can be found above the Planet Hollywood Casino, is raising money for a cause.  CEO Nick Haque wanted to get involved and help out those in Africa who are suffering from famine due to the recent drought.  Two dishes were introduced to the Koi menu to raise money for the cause.  The two dishes are the the Edamame Dumplings and the  Just a Little Shot. Fifty percent of the money from these two dishes will go towards the cause.  The Donations will be given to the U.N. World Food Program through the  “Just a Little” foundation.  When asked in an interview which dish is his favorite, Nick Haque responded, “Koi Crispy Rice topped with Spicy Tuna is one of my all-time favorites, but right now I love the Edamame Dumplings. Not only are they delicate and rich, but each bite sends support to East Africa.”  Koi has been successful in the past in the efforts to raise money for those suffering from disasters.  Recently, Koi raised over  $22,000 to help the victims of the earthquake in Japan.
