A Dream Gone Up In Flames

$8,490 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 46 people in 3 months
Created February 13, 2019
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.

I, Javier Rincon, as a relative of Ivette Van Der Donk, I have decided to start this fundraising in order to help my cousin and her family. I will withdraw these funds using my personal bank account due to Ivette lacks of Social Security Number( SSN) in the USA and will transfer/ deposit the whole amount of money I have collected to her personal bank account.

Yo, Javier Rincon, como familiar de Ivette Van Der Donk, he decido iniciar esta recaudación de fondos con la finalidad de ayudar a mi prima y su familia. Estos fondos seran retirados usando mi cuenta bancaria personal debido a Ivette no tiene numero de seguro social en los estados unidos y me comprometo a transferir/ depositar la totalidad de los fondos recolectados a su cuenta bancaria personal.
