Fly-n-Fish Oyster Bar is pleased to kick-off National Seafood Month with its second annual ‘Chowder for a Cause’ to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Throughout the month of October, proceeds from every order of New England Clam Chowder sold will be donated to the non-profit organization.
Guests of Fly-n-Fish were eager to support this great cause and last year alone, the oyster bar raised $10,000 in one month. Owners 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 couldn’t be happier with last year’s results.
“At Fly-n-Fish, we’re focused on giving back to our community and we are very excited to launch this fundraiser for the second year in a row. We are so fortunate to be well received by our guests and this is our way of saying thank you,” said the Loomis brothers.
Executive Chef Julio Hawkins will be serving his signature New England Clam Chowder recipe, packed with chopped clams, potatoes, and leeks. To perfect the flavor profile, Rick, Steve and Chef Julio sampled 23 different clam juices to find the perfect match and coupled it with Triple Applewood Smoked Bacon. 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.
