Foxnut Sushi in Beaver Creek gets sassy Friday

Special to the DailyTeam Sassy, a group of local teachers pictured above, will be serving at Foxnut in Beaver Creek tonight to raise funds for the Colorado MS Society.

BEAVER CREEK Tonight Foxnut Asian Fusion & Sushi will get a little bit sassy, Team Sassy that is. The restaurant will host Team Sassy, a group of local teachers, in an effort to raise funds for multiple sclerosis. For one night Team Sassy will make up the Foxnut wait-staff, donating all tips made to the Colorado Chapter of NMSS. The restaurant will open to the public for dinner, with its newly trained, hardworking staff, at 5 p.m.Team Sassy started in 2003 with a group of local friends participating in the Denver MS Walk. The group originally formed out of a desire to honor all of their friends who had been diagnosed with this mysterious disease. Several years later the friends decided to up the ante. In an effort to raise a greater amount of funding for Multiple Sclerosis, the team signed up for the Colorado MS Bike Tour a bike ride that covers 150 miles over a two day period. In doing so the team raised just short of $5,000 for the Colorado Chapter of NMSS.Once again, the team members have decided to step up their efforts and tackle a new challenge, sushi. The group has volunteered their services at Foxnut and will be waiting on all restaurant guests tonight. All tips the team collects for the evening will directly benefit the Colorado Chapter of NMSS.Team Sassy includes the following local teachers: Peyton Schlichting (Eagle County Charter Academy), Jennifer Loper (ECCA), Steve Loper (ECCA), Lee Stevenson (ECCA) Jason Mills (ECCA), Beth Cooney (Edwards Elementary) and KC Lasher (Vail Mountain School).A few facts about Multiple Sclerosis: MS is a chronic, unpredictable neurological disease that affects the central nervous system. In the United States today, there are approximately 400,000 people with multiple sclerosis with 200 more people diagnosed every week. Worldwide, MS is thought to affect more than 2.5 million people. There is no cure. Many therapeutic and technological advances are helping people manage symptoms. Advances in treating and understanding MS are made every year, and progress in research to find a cure is very encouraging.For more information about multiple sclerosis, visit For more information about the Team Sassy event at Foxnut contact Sarah Franke at
