The International Bar's Family Fund

The team from The International Bar wanted to set up a gofundme for our staff who are going to be hit hard with the inevitable shutdown of business. 

Given the industry pay structure and that our employees make their living off tips from customers like you, we are aware that unemployment will not be enough to keep our staff financially secure. In these trying times we are reaching out to our community for help. For almost two years we've been open 7 days a week until 2am serving up cocktails and beers to a community who loves to gather within our walls. Our staff makes us who we are. 

We have eight employees who provide for themselves with the tips made from working in our establishment. We're asking for $12,000 to assist these employees with their rent, food, utilities and healthcare during this shut down and potential aftershock. This will help keep our staff afloat for two months. 

We thank everyone in advance for your contribution, we certainly do not take asking for this kind of help lightly. Please consider donating towards one of our gifts!
