Save Elmer's Place

CCSU students, alumni, locals, & visitors,If there is ever a place to be on a Thursday night, or to watch Sunday football, it's Elmer's Place. Whether you attended Central Connecticut State University, or just came to visit a friend, I'm sure you've stepped foot in Elmer's at some point in time. For someone like myself who has spent more time here than not, you quickly learn Elmer's is not just a bar; rather a place to bring people together. Celebrating after big wins, graduations, the end of the semester, or even just a spot that you knew would never let you down after a long week of school, Elmer's Place was always the place to be.
After all the laughs, the tears, the good and the bad nights, that Elmers Place has brought all of us, it is our turn now to give back to them. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our local college bar is suffering greatly and without our help will be forced to close. Of all the memories made throughout college, we all know that at least one of them in our four years at CCSU was made at Elmers Place. For most of us, many. 

No donation is too small. Let's save our favorite place, and forever find ourselves in this bar! 

All profits will go to the Cook family to make sure that Elmer's is up and running for generations and generations to come!
