The Royale Employee Fund

Hello everyone!

Due to technical difficulties with Gofundme's payment processor, our old fundraiser is no longer available to us, so I started a new one.

My favorite space for community and music, The Royale, has been closed due to the COVID-19 crisis. I'm particularly in love with this place because my loving partner is a part-owner. 

This wonderful establishment employs many amazing people from bartenders, cleaners, security, musicians, and others that I've gotten to know over the course of many years.

I've found The Royale to be welcoming and energizing and am saddened that they are not able to run in the current state of San Francisco. 

Although it is my hope that government services will be somewhat helpful, I know it can only go so far in this time. I'd really love to raise some money so that it can go directly to The Royale family.

100% of these proceeds will be distributed to The Royale staff in hopes that we can ease some of the financial insecurity that continues.
