Bluewater Grills in California and Arizona Donate to World Wildlife Australia Fund

For every Aussie-inspired Bluewater Burger sold through February, restaurants will contribute to WWF’s Australian Wildlife Fund

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (Jan. 13, 2020) Bluewater Grill is working to save Australia’s wildlife threatened by the devastating wildfires – and is asking its loyal customers to help.

For every Aussie-inspired Bluewater Burger sold at any Bluewater Grill, Bluewater Avalon or Bluewater Boathouse Seafood Grill location through February 29, 2020, the company will donate $1 to the World Wildlife Fund Australian Wildlife and Nature Recovery Fund.

The effort is being organized in honor of Bluewater co-owner, co-founder Rick Staunton, a native of Sidney. Staunton opened the first Bluewater Grill with Jimmy (Jim-U) Ulcickas in Newport Beach in 1996, and the two have since built the company into one of the largest independent family of sustainable seafood restaurants in the West with 10 locations in California and Arizona.

A Bluewater menu staple since the beginning, the Aussie-inspired Bluewater Burger features a half-pound burger topped with crispy onions, wild arugula, heirloom tomato, a beet slice and fried egg.

The donation to the WFF will be honored at Bluewater Grill locations in Newport Beach, Redondo Beach, Temecula, Carlsbad and Santa Barbara, Calif., and in Phoenix; at Bluewater Avalon on Catalina Island; and at Bluewater Boathouse Seafood Grill on Coronado Island.

Bluewater lunch and dinner menus feature more than 40 varieties of fresh, sustainable seafood and shellfish served annually. Restaurant highlights include outdoor patios, shellfish bars, kid’s menus, full bars and wine lists, weekday happy hours and monthly tasting events.
