Grand Lux Cafe Employee Help Fund

As many of you know, due to the Covid-19 all restaurants & bars of Illinois and other states are required to close for dine in customers and only open for carryout until March 30,2020 and possibly much longer .

We’ve decided to start this helpfund in order to help our  most at risk employees those who can’t file for unemployment at 

Grand Lux Cafe Chicago

Back of the house who’s days got cut drastically and Front of the house who won’t be able to work at all.

These employees will have great difficulty getting bills paid any donation is greatly appreciated and with your help we can make things a little easier during this difficult time.

Thank you in advance for any donations made it’s all appreciated.
