South Beach Grill Raises Money for Local Elementary School

Jan 08, 2021

In a time when everyone is struggling, it’s crucial that we pitch in and help our community when we can. While many restaurants are hurting, the South Beach Grill wanted to help make a difference in the lives of the children of Wrightsville Beach and beyond.

In December, South Beach Grill donated half of all sales to support Wrightsville Beach Elementary School. These students and educators have had a challenging year, so it was important to the South Beach Grill team to support them through curbside and dine-in sales.

For 23 years, the South Beach family has always worked to give back to the community we serve and love. According to South Beach owner John Andrews, “We have donated our time and treasure in a variety of ways including fundraisers, service projects, and support of our Veterans. When we give back, it not only directly helps others, but we feel a sense of accomplishment and teamwork.”

When South Beach Grill was forced to close due to the pandemic on top of some recent devastating hurricanes, the future felt very bleak for everyone. However, despite a financial crisis, the staff organized a curbside brunch event that raised over $4000.00 for the four churches on Wrightsville Beach. And most recently, the SBG team raised over $680 for our local elementary school. Bottom line, no matter what is going on in the world, doing good benefits us all.

We have seen our community turned upside down during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many local merchants have lost their livelihood and are struggling to survive. But our strong neighbors have rallied behind these individuals to help them in their time of need. We are so proud to be part of this community!

When you dine at South Beach Grill, you are not only supporting our local business but many others as well.
