Emporium SF Employee Relief Fund

Hey everyone!
As many of you are aware, Emporium Arcade Bars have closed until further notice per the state of California order. We are hoping to be back and serving all of our wonderful patrons that have supported us, but there is a high chance the mandatory shutdown could go on for weeks. We are doing everything in our power to help our staff that have helped Emporium become what it is today, but sadly we are expecting unemployment for many weeks to come.

Please Note: This GoFund me is solely set up for our entire team in San Francisco and Oakland (Bartenders, Barbacks, Hourly Managers) who have made being open possible. 100% of all donations will go directly to our most affected staff during these very hard and unsure times.

This GoFundMe has been organized by Eva Olin (Marketing) and Stephanie Shaner (Events). We assure all our supporters that all donations will be distributed fairly and evenly amongst our team.

Friends, family, guests, we are asking for your support in this uncertain time, so we can help our team (over 50 incredible humans) feel relief of some financial burdens that they are now facing.

We have been so thankful to have such an amazing crew! Most of our team have been here since day one and when we get through the closures and tough times, we hope to open back up with our same family .If you have any questions or concerns regarding this fundraiser, please reach out through GoFundMe, and we will respond to all.

If you are comfortable sharing this GoFundMe, please do!Again, thank you so much & we look forward to sharing many more moments together soon,
Emporium Arcade Bar Family
