Help Save Cafe Pacific

Fumie (also known as Bubble Tea lady by some), and the owner of Cafe Pacific (114 Dryden Rd), is considering shutting down due to low business and overdue rent due to COVID.  A reddit post has been made to encourage current Cornellians to order food and boost business. However, I am sure many alumni (as myself) would love to help out. Fumie has always been there for us, and is perhaps the only person out of all the other businesses in ctown that genuinely cares about her clientele. I'm sure we've all felt at home and bonded with Fumie more than once. This is what kept us going back to her, and now it's our turn to give back.

This GoFund Me was approved by Fumie. I hope you all appreciate this fun picture of her, and hope Cafe Pacific survives for many years to come so that we can once again visit during reunions and reminisce of the few places that still make Cornell feel like the good ol' days.
