As many of you know, Atlanta's most iconic pub, Manuel's Tavern, will be temporarily shutting its doors at the end of the year for a much-needed facelift.
The staff of the tavern is its lifeblood, and this fund is for them. They will still need to pay the bills while the bar is closed, so in the spirit of the holidays, donate what you can to help them out!
This GoFundMe is the work of Manuel's regulars, for whom the bar is a second home. The staff have become our friends, and this is our way of helping them out during this transition.
Manuel's employs about 60 people, so the goal is to raise $1,000 for each employee - enough money to help them through about a month's worth of bills.
GoFundMe's mechanism for payouts is WePay, and all-in-all the service retains about 7% of donations. The rest of the money goes directly to the staff!
Each staff member who wants to participate will contact me and receive 1 share. 100% of whatever is raised by the time the bar closes down will be divided equally between these shares, and each staff member will receive a check in the mail. I am collaborating closely with fellow regulars to ensure transparency. Message me through GoFundMe, or at my Facebook page with any questions.
