Avant Gardner employee relief effort

To all of our loyal dance floor connoisseurs,

During these unprecedented times, due to the COVID-19 pandemic Avant Gardner was forced to close their doors. All of us who have been an essential part of this family are reaching out to ask for your assistance. The venue employs up to 400 people in staff between our summer and winter seasons. Many are now under financial distress due to the venue’s temporary closure. Your contribution will help us provide food and shelter to members of the AG crew whose main source of income came from the venue. The funds raised will be equally distributed between these staff members who need it most.From serving drinks and food, taking coats, running sound and lights, and creating the unmatched ambiance show after show, the staff has dedicated their lives to help creating the space the community has come to love over the past few years. We’re now in an unimaginable circumstance of relying on the kindness of our local and greater communities to support our team. We know this is an extremely challenging time for everyone, and we understand that not everyone who has come to love and cherish the moments at the venue will be able to contribute. We are doing our best to keep our heads up and keep the smiles shining as we do every time you see us at our events or parties! Every contribution matters and we hope you can help us through these times. To help this initiative to reach its goal, Avant Gardner will be supporting this campaign by donating the following: 

#1 - Highest donation receives a lifetime pass to events at Avant Gardner (*Some restrictions apply)
#2 - 2nd & 3rd highest donation receives a 1 year GA access pass to shows of their choice (*Some restrictions apply)

If you’ve made a lifelong friend, or simply had a moment you’ll never forget in The Brooklyn Mirage, Great Hall, Kings Hall, or The Lost Circus, please consider supporting the staff who made it happen. We hope everyone is staying safe and know we sincerely appreciate every contribution. Every bit helps and counts towards the bigger goal.If you’re unable to give financial support, all we can ask is to help spread the word and love.

With LOVE,
Avant Gardner staff
