Support for Raven's Grin Inn

For over 33 years Raven's Grin Inn has become a year round destination for all ages. Like so many others due to Covid we shut down in March, hoping of course that by October, our busy season, things would potentially be at a point where we could re-open and continue to entertain and delight our customers. Unfortunately, things have not improved and re-opening is currently not an option. And while state regulations have said this type of business may not resume, we also personally would not want to potentially jeopardize the safety and health of our customers, our employees or ourselves.

Financially, not being open during the spring and summer set us back, however now losing the fall, our future is looking a little more uncertain than before. Many of our customers have asked how they could help, and until this point (when we thought there was a chance of opening for Halloween) we were doing merchandise sales. Once it was apparent we would not be opening for October, it was suggested we start a GoFundMe. This is awkward for us, and I cannot tell you the deep level of appreciation we have for those who are trying to help or who even offer kind words of support. If you are able to donate, rest assured every cent will be used by us to continue towards the goal of re-opening. We may not know when that will be (everything is so uncertain for everyone right now) but it WILL be happening. Thank you all for your years of support and we hope to see you soon.
