Maverick Staff Assistance Fund

With a heavy heart I am writing to let you know that Maverick will be shutting it’s doors effective immediately due to the COVID-19 state of emergency. This was a choice made by the management team due to the of the federal and state recommendations as well as the lack of business due to the social distancing advisory. We feel it is the responsible thing to do given the circumstances.

The most difficult piece for us in this situation is our team. The folks that serve your tables, pour your wines and prepare your food. We have no choice but to put our entire team on furlough until this thing blows over. We hope that our actions in closing will help the efforts to contain the virus so that their return to work will be swift and they do not fall into hardships.

In the mean time we have started this Go-Fund Me to raise money for our staff members that have been laid off. Many of them do not have back-up plans and do not know what they are going to do in the weeks to come. My thoughts on this are simple. Our pay-roll at Maverick with gratuities included averages 45k a two week period. If we reach our goal we will divide this evenly between the entire team based on average hours worked as a cushion in these turbulent times. Perhaps in two weeks our government will step in and/or we will have more answers on the uncertain future.  IF you would like to donate to this please click here. 100% of the money donated will go to our team members that are out of work and no longer receiving income.

I realize that everyone is experiencing financial hardships during this difficult time. If you are one of the lucky ones that has not been affected as severely and can find it in your heart to donate. Any amount will help. Thank you in advance.
