Cafe Villamor Break In Fundraiser

Hey everyone, Gabriel here. I wanted to share some unfortunate news with you all. Early this morning, our beloved Cafe Villamor was burglarized. They broke in and stole Kyla's lockbox, register, deposit box and parts of our POS stations.

To make matters worse, Kyla has been at home sick the last few days and I've been working at 'Iolani Fair, which means we hadn't had the chance to empty the registers/lockbox as we usually do at night – a truly unlucky timing of events.

Despite feeling heartbroken and shaken by this incident, we don't want it to become a negative memory for our community. Instead, we've decided to turn this into an opportunity to bring everyone together and celebrate the good times. We're launching this GoFundMe campaign to help Kyla recover from this setback and get Cafe Villamor back on its feet.

In appreciation of your support, everyone who donates will be invited to a private Coffee & Latte Art Throwdown event that we'll organize after Kyla's birthday. It'll be a night of fun, community, coffee, and most importantly, a celebration of the spirit that makes Cafe Villamor so special.

We know times are tough for everyone, but any contribution, big or small, will make a difference. If you're unable to donate, please consider sharing our GoFundMe campaign with your friends and family. We're grateful for your support and look forward to coming back stronger than ever. Any funds exceeding our drive will go towards getting Kyla a more secure safe, cover the rekeying of the building and supporting ongoing community events such as the one we are throwing for this GoFundMe.

Thank you all for being part of our Cafe Villamor community. We'll get this sorted out as soon as we can and be back to serving you all amazing coffee.

With love and gratitude,
Gabriel (and Kyla)
