Blue Water Grill raises funds for new ECG machine
Saturday, April 16th, 2016
Each month, the Blue Water Grill (BWG) restaurant along with its sister business The Phoenix Resort, raises funds to support different organizations in San Pedro. Last month, donations not only came from BWG and The Phoenix, but also from Canary Cove, who joined the initiative to raise money for an Electrocardiogram (ECG) machine for the Dr. Otto Rodriguez San Pedro Polyclinic II.
During the month of March, BWG, The Phoenix and Canary Cove raised $8,920 to purchase the machine for the Polyclinic. The BWG intended to purchase the machine back in August 2015, however, other urgent clinic essentials took precedence. Spirometers, pulse oximeters and thermometers among other necessary supplies were donated instead.
Now that funds have been raised for the ECG, the doctors and nurses at the clinic will be better able to take care of the community of San Pedro. The official handing over ceremony will be announced at a later date. BWG, The Phoenix, and Canary Cove would like to thank everyone for their donations and for making this possible.
For April, the BWG will be raising funds for the 3rd Annual Camp Star Fish, a 2-week long summer camp for children with special needs in San Pedro. All children attend free of charge and funds raised will go towards arts & crafts, water, snacks, activities, t-shirts, and a party on the last day. Donations of any amount can be made in person at BWG during normal business hours or online at www.bluewatergrill.com/community
