Keep Nightlight Open

Nightlight is a small nightclub located in Chapel Hill, NC.  We are closed indefinitely in order to help limit the spread of COVID-19.  All funds raised will go towards paying our staff and rent during the time that we are closed.  Supporting the staff is our first priority, with sufficient funds we will directly pay staff the wages and tips that they would have made if we were still open.  Any remaining funds will help us pay rent to keep the space so we can eventually re-open.

About me: I live in Carrboro and have been a co-owner of Nightlight since 2013.  Nightlight has been open since 2003, and has always been run by a small group of friends.

thank you so much for your help!
