Save Ray's Red Hots!

Our locally owned Ann Arbor restaurant - Ray's Red Hots - is in SERIOUS TROUBLE as we continue to be crippled by the COVID 19 crisis.  We are hoping that you might find it in your heart to donate whatever you can spare to help us stay open :-)  No donation is too small & every single dollar matters!  

We pride ourselves on community involvment, corporate charitable giving, local sourcing of products and Michigan Pride!!!!  Almost 11 years of our blood, sweat, tears and $ are on the line here as we struggle to stay alive during this lockdown.  We want to continue to offer our quality American comfort food to carnivores & vegans alike, at our restaurant AND on the road via our mobile food carts, for decades to come.  But sadly, without your help, we may not make it through the next 3 months.

WE ARE PROUD TO SAY THAT WE HAVE NOT CLOSED OUR DOORS DURING THIS CRISIS!  We continue to keep our employees working, our local Michigan vendors PAID and our customers fed SAFELY (& deliciously).  Your donations will go straight toward essential operational expenses, including payroll, utilities, rent, food purchases, vendor payments & so on.

Please help us preserve Ann Arbor's unique local flavor!!!!  Your support would mean the world to us - you have the power to literally save our livelyhoods.  When this has all settled down, we WILL find a way to thank each and every one of you who gives to us in the days & weeks to come.   Our hope is to get enough donors to fill the south wall of our building with everyone's name, enshrined in a mural painted by a local artist, to commemorate this unprecedented event for many years to come.  If not, though, we WILL do something else for all of you - as long as we're still here after this is over!  

Warmest regards,

Ray, Phil, Cliff & the rest of the RRH team.  #SmallBusinessRelief
