Anyone making a donation to our Pay It Forward To Ophelia campaign in any amount will receive an electronic gift card for twice the value which can be used at any Merchants Hospitality Restaurant once we reopen. 


In the past few weeks, many of you have reached out asking how you can help and we are grateful for your support.  Donating to our Pay It Forward To Ophelia campaign will directly support our team at Ophelia. Reaching our campaign goal will provide each of our affected team members between $400 –  $800, allowing them to cover some of their essential costs.  100% of all monies received will be distributed evenly amongst all team members.  Now, more than ever, we need our community to support our amazing team who find themselves out of work due to the catastrophic COVID-19 virus and government mandated shutdowns.


We are overwhelmingly appreciative for your countless messages, and hope that you will join us in supporting our incredibly hard-working team.  We thank you in advance for passing along this message to others to help us reach our goal.


With your support and generosity, perhaps we can make it a little bit easier for our team members.  We cannot wait to get back to Ophelia and extend our hospitality to you, and we thank you for all your support.


With gratitude,


The Team at Ophelia
Merchants Hospitality
