Fly'n'Fish Oyster Bar, known for its fresh, high-quality seafood in Newport Beach, California, donated $10,000 to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital after hosting a monthlong philanthropic initiative, Chowder For A Cause, where proceeds from every bowl of New England Clam Chowder sold were donated. Owners, brothers, and restaurateurs Rick and Steve Loomis, who have been in the hospitality industry for nearly four decades, wanted to find a way to give back to their community and are thrilled by the results.
“We're very focused on giving back to our community and helping others, and we couldn't be happier with how many of our guests supported Chowder For A Cause," the brothers say.
Chowder For A Cause was launched in October, in celebration of National Seafood Month. Fly'n'Fish is a strong supporter of ensuring a healthy ocean future by focusing on sustainable seafood brought in daily from the most prominent and responsible purveyors of fine foods from around the world, such as Santa Monica Seafood, who donated all of the clams for the cause.
