Maybe they get a certain dollar amt. of a gift card with a certain dollar amt. of a donation? Ex)donate $50 and get blah, donate $100 and get blah, donate $25 and get blah blah.??

Blu’ Island Bistro supports not only the local community, but we have a big heart for animals. If you’ve ever visited Blu’ Island with your pet, we hope this is evident. You can read what one of our guests experienced Holbrook S, Swansea (

Maybe it's because we have three rescue dogs of our own - we've adopted. The last one had a broken back and couldn't walk - he now walks and is part of our family (wheelchair and all).

Kim and Alan are going to NYC to run for the dogs! We are running to support The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). 100% of funds raised go to ASPCA.
