Carnivale Staff Relief Fund

The government mandate to temporarily close dine-in service at all restaurants has created a harsh reality for our staff, as well as workers across the hospitality industry, whose livelihoods depend on people gathering together and enjoying a night out.

Our staff is suffering the immediate economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic as Carnivale is closed until the mandate is lifted.

Maybe you have enjoyed a celebratory dinner, sipped cocktails during Happy Hour, hosted a special event or celebrated your wedding at Carnivale. If so, you know our staff enjoyed being a part of your celebration and are an important ingredient behind the magic of Carnivale. 

You could help to get them through this incredibly difficult time by donating, if you are able. Even the smallest amount will help to alleviate the stress of unemployment and lack of work opportunities until we can open again.

All proceeds from our GoFundMe fundraiser will go directly to the Carnivale staff. We have 130 people who need your support.

Brynn Ray is the Director of Marketing for Carnivale and is managing the communications for our GoFundMe account and our General Manager, Ozzie Godoy is managing the funds.
