During this time of uncertainty, many of our guests, friends and neighbors have asked what they can do to help financially to support the Matanzas employees which they hold dear. Like many other businesses on Fort Myers Beach, we had to make the difficult decision to indefinitely furlough most of our team until the Governor’s executive order is lifted for the restaurant. Our Local town council has wisely also ordered our hotel to be vacated and future bookings canceled for the next three months. We are beyond appreciative and blown away by this outpouring of love and support for our employees and their families.
Because of that, we have set up the Matanzas Employee Relief Fund to help support this wonderful team. The Speirn- Smith family will match every contribution dollar for dollar up to the amount of $10,000, which could have a profound impact in the lives of these outstanding people. Your continued support during this difficult time means more to us than you will ever know.
We will get through this together and we look forward to welcoming you back to our restaurant and inn when it is safe to gather again.
In the meantime, take care of each other and stay well.
With gratitude and appreciation,
Doug & Christy Speirn-Smith
