Fiola Mare Tipped Employee Relief Fund


In the wake of COVID-19, the restaurant community of DC has been hit the hardest. Employees whose earnings depend on tips (your Captains and Bussers, Runners and Bartenders, Drink Runners and Barbacks) have been laid off due to massive restaurant closures, are no longer able to make the living, and are experiencing financial hardships. 

On behalf of these employees, we are asking all Fiola Mare friends, fans, and lifetime supporters to donate money to this relief fund to help them to weather this unseen financial storm.  Your financial contributions and attention are priceless and we forever are thankful for everything you have done for Fiola Mare before and after the Coronavirus has impacted our lives. We'll ensure that they will be distributed to those who are in most need at this time. 

We would like to assure you that all raised money will be distributed among Fiola Mare tipped employees who are seeking financial assistance and are willing to accept this assistance. We will absolutely ensure your contributions go to the intended recipients and divided equally among them.

Thank you in advance for all your support. We are looking forward to coming out stronger from this life-changing experience and serve our community with the same mission Chef Fabio Trabocchi has always inspired us - Make People Happy.

Yours truly,

Fiola Mare DC Team!
