This is the OFFICIAL GoFundMe for Hank Dietle's. Thank you for all of your requests to help. We are in the process of planning the initial cleanup and determining insurance coverage for the building.
In the meantime, this fund is being setup to assist with the recovery efforts to help bring Hank Dietle's back: the very first steps of cleanup, to help our employees who are out of work, musicians out of equipment, purchasing replacement items for rebuilt space.
This fund is being setup primarily for concern of the staff, community and the bands who played at Dietle’s, and for the hope of ultimately bringing music back to it. It is to help with the initial cleanup (dumpsters and disposal costs), the staff with weekly stipends (similar to amounts they received weekly before the fire), small fees the business pays regularly and possibly monthly rent for as long as the fund can pay. All disbursements from the fund will be transparent and listed.
