Gabi Walker-Aguilar of 4 Suns
Hello, Evanston community and beyond. As many of us know, the majority of our city’s beloved 4 Suns Fresh Juices store was destroyed in a fire early the morning of Friday, February 3. It would be impossible to comprehend the challenges owner Gabi Walker-Aguilar is facing in these early moments as she physically and emotionally surveys the damage done to her shop. It will take months and months to rebuild and begin anew.
WE JUST FOUND OUT that insurance is only covering $25k of the MASSIVE cost of recuperating the shop’s structure itself. IN ADDITION, Gabi is now out of a job and the ability to maintain a living in order to care
for herself and her family (if you didn’t know, the shop is named for her 4 boys). The amount of personal expenses she will incur as a result of this fire is staggering, and insurance doesn’t cover those expenses.
For patrons of 4 Suns and lovers of the Evanston community, it’s no secret what Gabi has brought to us time and time again over the years. She has shown and embraced a deep love and desire to make our city be the absolute best it can be, and challenged us to do the same. She’s also taught many of us how to care for ourselves and one another so we can lead rich and full lives. Lastly. Gabi has been through more than almost any individual I know, and it’s my belief is that the Evanston community she cares so much about can now RALLY to support her and her family.
Gabi and her energy and power are absolutely crucial to Evanston, and I am confident that we can work together in helping her literally and figuratively rise from the current ashes into a beautiful new sun.
Please donate what you can so we can keep Gabi in positive spirits as she rebuilds her dream. AND SHARE THIS GO FUND ME WHEREVER YOU CAN! Every dollar matters.
Let’s do this, Evanston! ☀️☀️☀️☀️….☀️
