DC9 Nightclub Employee Relief Fund

To Our Fantastic Supporters & Community
In light of the recent global health & safety concerns stemming from COVID-19, DC9 Nightclub have been forced to postpone all events, shows and gatherings for the foreseeable future.
We absolutely understand why this decision was made. We have a great responsibility to our community to help slow the spread of COVID-19. But the closures no doubt have hit the music and nightlife community particularly hard, and as a result, our team is feeling this impact. 
We owe the 16 years of success of DC9 in large part to the incredible work of our staff.
This includes our door staff who greet you all, our bartenders who keep your glasses full and the good times flowing, our cooks that keep you fed and our security and production staff members who work tirelessly behind the scenes to keep our venue safe and the music sounding amazing and that events go off with out a hitch. They depend on the income made from our shows, dance parties and just nightly hangs to support themselves and their families. They are feeling the effects of our temporary closure the most. 
We are now asking the DC9 community, if you are able, to please consider giving your financial support to our staff, to help elevate the stress until this terrible pandemic passes. All donations from this fund will directly benefit DC9's staff. Their work, along with the support of live music lovers like you will keep the clubs alive and vital for many years to come.
In appriciantion and gratitude, here is what we can offer you if you are able to offer your support:
• Under $10: Endless gratitude. Thank you so much for being amazing.

• $10 or more: Snail mail: We'll send you a handwritten thank-you card from our staff

We know we aren't the only ones impacted by this pandemic, and our hearts and support are with everybody who is working on the front lines of this crisis to keep us all healthy and safe. So please know that no matter the dollar amount you are able to contribute, our team is so very grateful to you. We love you, we appreciate the support you've shown us over 16 years, and we look forward to opening our doors very soon. Thank you so much! See you on the other side
