LONG BEACH — Pickled Fish Restaurant at the Adrift Hotel has created Cocktail for A Cause, a pay-it-forward campaign which it said has raised more than $3,100 for deserving local organizations since September.
The restaurant donates 50 percent of the proceeds from a new craft cocktail crafted each month. Each cocktail is named for a designated organization, such as “The Silly Kid” for the Boys & Girls Club or “Man’s Best Friend” for the South Pacific County Humane Society.
“The genesis of Cocktail for A Cause is simple. It’s a way for our restaurant to come together with the community to give something more. The campaign is an extension of our philosophy of supporting local resources and purveyors, and we want to do more to support where we work, live and love,” said Rebecca Charles, food and beverage director for the restaurant and hotel.
“Since the creation of CFC, Pickled Fish has donated funds to the Ilwaco Parks and Recreation Commission to transform the Ilwaco Community Park, as well as the Boy & Girls Club, the Humane Society, and the Ocean Park Food Bank. We look forward to sharing and giving to many more deserving causes,” said Charles.
