Bluewater Grill Newport Employee Relief Fund

Dearest friends and family of Newport.  We call you family because over the last 20 plus years that's what you all have become to us.  The familiar faces who we see almost daily. Who come in to get their favorite meal, served by their favorite employee.  You come in and the bartender already knows your drink of choice.  You know us all by name, ask us how's our family, how's school, what do we have planned for the weekend.  We are your first stop when you come back from vacation because you crave something familiar.   You come to us to celebrate your happy occasions, and in some cases, to gather with loved ones and seek comfort in times of sorrow.  We have been and will always be there for you.  Now we ask that you, our family, be there for us in our most desperate time of need.  Just as many of our fellow Americans, the employees of Bluewater Grill lost their livelihood due to the mandatory closure from the coronavirus pandemic.  With more than 80 employees now without a means to support themselves or their families, we ask you to please donate what you can to help them until the mandatory closure has been lifted.  This will run through the second week of April and all money raised will be divided equally with every employee. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
