Thanks to a family of island businesses, San Pedro Roman Catholic School (SPRCS) first-floor classrooms are now tiled and ready for the new school year in September. The tile project was sponsored by Blue Water Grill along with its sister businesses, Red Ginger, The Phoenix Resort and Wine de Vine, and cost approximately 30,000 dollars.
The projected started at the beginning of July, and the money was raised via Blue Water Grill’s monthly charity guest donations. From January through June 2019 they raised money to tile the first-floor classrooms at SPRCS. In total, guests at The Phoenix and customers at Red Ginger, Wine de Vine, and Blue Water Grill donated 8,881.24 dollars. They matched this amount 100% for a total amount of 17,762 dollars. However, the project cost was $30,000, as it included repairing the existing concrete subfloor and pouring screed, along with the approximately 4,500 square feet of tile, materials, and labor. As such, Blue Water Grill decided to contribute an additional 12,500 dollars to reach their $30,000 goal.Click here to read the rest of the article in the San Pedro Sun
