Local Whitefish Restaurant Staff Relief Fund

As residents of Whitefish, we have come to know and been blessed with great restaurant servers and staff at our many locally owned Whitefish restaurants. There are over 600+ servers and staffers in Whitefish.

During these difficult times of COVID-19, we as a family wanted to acknowledge the challenges they are currently experiencing and show our deep appreciation for them by setting up a Go-Fund-Me page to raise monies for them. 

The Costa family has set up and will donate $500 to this campaign and we encourage any of you who can, to contribute. No donation is too small! All monies donated will be used to purchase Visa gift cards which will be distributed to either the local business owner or general manager who will then disperse the gift cards to their servers and staff. We will apply a scale based on number of employees by restaurant to distribute the gift cards. Ideally we would love to raise enough cash to purchase AT LEAST one gift card for each server and staff at each locally owned restaurant.  

We are so grateful for this amazing community of friends and neighbors who show us endless love and support, and we feel compelled to pay it forward the best we can during these uncertain times. We appreciate any support you can give and please share this with as many people as you can.

with love and gratitude,
The Costa Family
