Bogart's Emergency Employee Relief Fund

Due to the unprecedented and unpredictable outbreak of COVID-19, Bogart's Entertainment Center has been forced to suspend all operations until further notice.

This has resulted in all of our valued employees to be laid off without notice. All cooks,  bartenders, servers, bus boys, bowl desk attendants, mechanics and managers are now fighting to make ends meet with no clear certainty as to what the future holds. There are no opportunities for other jobs in this industry at the moment, and it is unclear if and when we will all return to work at the place many of us have called home for 35 years.

We are turning to you - our neighbors, friends, patrons and colleagues - to help us support our employees who have now found themselves without jobs or opportunities for income. We ask that anyone who is in a position to do so to please consider a monetary donation to these well-deserving people and employees. 100% of proceeds will go directly toward our team members who need immediate relief as we navigate this on-going crisis. 

We love our community of Apple Valley and the neighboring cities. We look forward to seeing you all back at Bogart's sometime very soon.  As a family-owned and operated business for over 35 years, we thank you for your continued patronage, support and outpouring of love you've all shown us during this terribly difficult time.

Owner at Bogart's Entertainment Center
