Fish City Grill Serves up Cups of Hope for the Gulf Coast Region

$1 From Each Cup of Gumbo Sold Through May 31 will be Donated to The Greater New Orleans Foundation’s Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund

DALLAS ( Fish City Grill and Half Shells restaurants revive their “Cup of Hope” program. They will donate $1 from each cup of Gumbo sold through May 31, 2010 to The Greater New Orleans Foundation’s Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund. The Greater New Orleans Foundation serves as a conduit to fund donations into the affected communities on a short and long-term basis.

“We created the Cup of Hope program when Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast in 2005. We are restarting it to help out those affected by the recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico,” said Bill Bayne, who co-founded Fish City Grill with his wife, Lovett. “We are pleased to be able to provide assistance to those in need. We hope that our example encourages others – whether individuals or corporations – to help this distressed region.”
