Blue Heron Staff Relief Fund

This GoFundMe is now closed and funds have been distributed to all of our staff. Our deepest thanks to everyone who contributed! <3


As many of you know, we made the tough decision to temporarily close Blue Heron Restaurant as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. With additional state advisories, we will be closed for, at minimum, three weeks. This means that our incredible team of Chefs, cooks, waitstaff, bartenders, dishwashers and office staff are without work during this time.

Many of you have asked if there is a way to help our employees directly, so we put together this fundraiser to give everyone a little extra help until we are able to re-open.

Every dollar raised will be distributed directly to our restaurant staff, from front to back. Even if you are only able to donate $5 or $20, every little bit helps.

We are so grateful for the support of our community and look forward to re-opening our doors and welcoming you all back as soon as it is safe to do so!

With our deepest gratitude,

Deborah, Barbara and the Blue Heron team
