Middle East/Sonia Employee Relief Fund

Healthy and happy greetings to all music, food & life lovers!

The Middle East Restaurant and Nightclub has been a family-run local Cambridge business for over four decades.  More than three of these have been spent supporting local, regional and even global artists.  We would like to continue working with these communities and promote an entertainment (and hopefully entertaining) legacy.

We want to try our best to help these families, small and large, during this testing time of our existence.  So, due to our Covid-19 closure and cancellations by artists, promoters and, well, the world we thought we would implore the generosity within each of us to help our employees.

Obviously this is a period of sacrifice for every citizen of the world, and as necessary as that is right now, we will also hold on to the hope of the music coming back (very) soon!  So just to ensure we are all still here and healthy when that does, inevitably, happen this gofundme seems to be a promising endeavor for us & the community as a whole!  Thank you everybody!
