Backdraft Fire, Lake Ariel PA

Early this morning there was a devastating fire that demolished Backdraft bar and grill in Lake Ariel PA. Thankfully no one was hurt, however, two apartments were destroyed in the fire along with all of the tenants' belongings. Two of our close friends, Don and John have lost EVERYTHING. Don has had surgery recently, which he is still recovering from. Don has been a loyal Backdraft employee for years. John had recently moved into the other apartment at Backdrafts. Both of these gentlemen are well known and well liked in the community, always lending a helping hand to those in need. Now it is time to give back to them. Please donate whatever you can to help them rebuild after this devastating event. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
