A Dream Gone Up In Flames

$7,840 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 42 people in 1 month
On February 3, 2019, 10 years of hard work and honest effort by chef Patrick van der Donk, and his wife and business partner Ivette Benavides was completely destroyed.

A late night fire tore through their restaurant leaving nothing to salvage. They lost everything in the fire. Despite what they understood would be covered by insurance, turned out otherwise. The insurer advised them that they are only entitled to very limited compensation.

But Patrick and Ivette are undeterred by this setback. They are strong and resilient people, a hard-working family, and devoted parents to 4 year old triplet boys. Their focus is finding a new location for their restaurant while working out of a temporary “pop-up” location to pay their bills.

In order to re-establish what they lost and open a new location. Patrick and Ivette need our financial support. We are asking everyone who knows Patrick and Ivette or has visited their restaurant, to make a financial contribution thru this GoFundMe campaign. Every dollar raised will go directly to support the direct costs to re-establish their restaurant.

To show their appreciation for your donation, Patrick and Ivette would like to offer a gift certificate you can redeem at their new restaurant once opened.
Donate $50 and receive a certificate for two free drinks.
Donate $100 and receive a $25 certificate
Donate $200 and receive a $50 certificate
Donate $400 or more and receive a $100 certificate
On behalf of Patrick and Ivette, thank you in advance for your support.
