Last week’s devastating oil spill along the Orange County coastline caused the closure of local beaches and an immeasurable disruption to the local ecology and wildlife. Here are three local businesses banding the community together to help with clean-up efforts.
The Orange restaurant dedicated to showcasing the quality of local, sustainable seafood, will donate 10 percent of proceeds from the restaurant’s October National Seafood Month specials to Surfrider Foundation. The nonprofit is working actively to reduce the oil spill’s ecological impact and restore our coastal environment.
Lost Pier Café
The oceanfront cafe by The Ranch at Laguna Beach will donate 100 percent of its revenue during its reopening today. The profits will go to Surfrider Foundation and Pacific Marine Mammal Center.
Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort & Marina
The bayside, family-friendly resort is donating $10,000 to Wetlands and Wildlife Care Center and Pacific Marine Mammal Center. Both of these Orange County-based nonprofits are dedicated to the rehabilitation and release of oiled wildlife.
