ProgressBar Staff Relief Fund

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak the governor of Illinois issued a mandated closure of all bars and restaurants effective March 16th, 2020 until further notice.  This closure has caused many hard working individuals to be out of work, and unfortunately, making it very difficult to afford their bills and basic necessities during this time and well into recovering after. Here at Progress Bar, we ache to see what is happening all over, especially to our fellow industry coworkers, neighbors, friends, and families.  We enjoy seeing people all over the community enjoying themselves at various entertainment industries and would love to see that again. 

   This GoFundme page has been set up in order to help the very hardworking, unique staff of Progress Bar offset some of their bills they need in order to maintain a steady living environment during this trying time.  100% of all donations will go directly to the staff of Progress Bar that are, in reality, one amazing family.  

  To anyone we have had a privilege of meeting, building friendships with, or even just provided a place for you to vent to someone and help turn your day around for the better, we thank you from the depths of our hearts and appreciate any amount one may be willing/able to donate no matter how big or small.  Every donation will be greatly appreciated. We can't wait to see everyone out having a good time Again, whether it be to dancing to music with friends and loved ones, or out just enjoying a nice beverage. We thank you and hope to see everyone again very soon.  

                                            With love,
                                                       Progress Bar
