West Seattle Blog… | BIZNOTE: Duke’s Seafood Alki is looking for four nonprofits to help with ‘countdown to deck’ benefits


In addition to the community planning effort in anticipation of the reopening of the West Seattle Bridge (updated here last night), some businesses and organizations are also hosting special events. Duke’s Seafood Alki (BMS sponsor) is planning four restaurant benefits in the coming months and is looking for interested nonprofits to be considered. Here is the ad:

Duke’s Seafood Alki today launched a search for nonprofits to highlight and honor as part of its “Countdown to the Bridge” campaign. Duke’s Seafood designed the campaign to celebrate the hard workers of West Seattle as they fight the challenges imposed by the closure of the West Seattle Bridge. Nonprofits are encouraged to share their story on our website by the end of April 2022.

“With the opening in sight, we would like to thank the nonprofits who continued to work tirelessly during the difficult months of the bridge closure,” said Duke Moscrip, founder of Duke’s Seafood. “We know these challenges firsthand. The transport difficulties and their consequences on Alki beach due to the closure of the bridge hit us all hard. So, as we count down to opening, we want to recognize four nonprofits in West Seattle, one per month, to which we donate a percentage of our sales for that evening.

Duke’s Seafood is looking for nonprofits in the West Seattle area and has created a webpage to apply for this partnership: dukesseafood.com/locations/alki. “Duke’s Seafood values ​​sustainability and honesty in everything we do,” says Moscrip. “We seek to align with nonprofits that share these values. We encourage any nonprofit in the area to tell us your story, how you serve the community, and the challenges you faced due to the bridge closure. We know it has been difficult and we hope our small gesture will make a difference.

Duke’s Seafood Alki opened in 2001 at 2516 Alki Ave SW, West Seattle. It’s open for lunch and dinner from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, with Happy Hour daily from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. at the terrace and bar.

Duke plans to announce recipient organizations by April 30, so it’s best to apply as soon as possible.
