Mac's Wood Grilled Staff Relief Fund

Hello friends of Mac's Wood Grilled.

Governor Pritzker has implemented a mandatory dine-in shutdown for all bars and restaurants in Illinois through at least April 30. This unfortunately impacts our hardworking staff.  We are offering delivery, curbside pickup and carryout, but we still had to cut shifts for our servers, bartenders and bussers. Our staff can’t work remotely and can’t go to work, yet they still have to pay their rent and other bills. Although we have distributed funds collected from this campaign to our staff,  they still need help.

All funds raised in this Go Fund Me campaign go directly to impacted employees so they can survive this shutdown. Think of it as a virtual tip for that future cocktail. Every little bit helps – we appreciate whatever you can kick in.

Michael Bomher, Mac’s generous owner, is promising a thank you party invite to all those who donate. This soiree will happen sometime after we are fully back in action, hopefully sooner rather than later.

In the meantime, practice social distancing, wash your hands, and stay healthy. We hope to see you soon!

Thank you,

Mac's Wood Grilled
