Good news, sad news, doing our part, a challenge, and why this picture?

Good news: From June 1 to June 26, our customers donated $1,977, which we matched 100%. So, we contributed $3,954 to buy backpacks for disadvantaged students at San Pedro High School and to build palapas at the school, so the kids can eat lunch in the shade. This project is being organized by Miss San Pedro High School 2016-2017.

Sad news: In the early morning of June 27, there was a big fire in town. So, starting June 27 and continuing through July, we are raising money to help the victims of last night's fire on Middle Street.  We will match all donations we collect and give 100% of the funds to the Lions Den, which is coordinating the relief effort.

Doing our part: The fire victims need help now, so we are donating $5,000 immediately to the Lions Den, so that they can buy food, toiletries, and stuff for kids (diapers, wipes, toys, etc.). 

Challenge:  We will match the first $5,000 in donations made at our restaurant or on our website from now through the end of July. 

Why this pic? The man who makes our tarps for the restaurant lost everything in the fire. As you can see, his tarps are vital to our business on rainy days. He's just one reason why we feel compelled to do our part to help those who have been impacted by the fire.

Thanks for helping us make a difference in San Pedro!
