On March 18, 2015, Titusville, PA had devastating fires that broke out in the historic downtown area. Many businesses and apartments were damaged in the wake of this destruction.  The Blue Canoe Brewery, owned by Bill Zimmer and Jeremy Potocki, was heavily damaged. This fire has caused the business to temporarily close.

Though the business has some insurance, there is not enough to cover all the expenses (employee immediate needs, equipment, and other items in the brewery and restaurant). 

Therefore, this gofundme site is being set-up to assist the owners in rebuilding their business so that they can reopen again and give 27 people their jobs back.

The owners started this business in 2008 and have continued to support the Titusville area. They just acquired space next to the Brewery in order to expand the business into a production facility. It is obvious that this business has been striving to support this community and now we need the community to help them move forward in their rebuilding efforts.

UPDATE 3/19/15 2:30pm: Char just notified us that the building is not condemned and that they will be able to reopen in their existing space. Please continue to provide support so that they can get their business back up and running.

Thank you in advance for your support.
