Support Club 1220

Back in early March of 2020, Holotta and I took a leap and decided to buy Club 1220. We wanted to make sure that this bar stayed open for the LGBTQ+ community and continue to provide the safe place it has been since 1976 with the Crovo family. Together with family and friends, we came up with the funding and made an offer and it was accepted. Then, March 16th came and California shut down.
Even after COVID-19 hit, shutting down bars across the Bay Area and throughout California, we knew they could not back out. The community needs this bar to be around to make sure there is a place for individuals to just be themselves.
Finally, on September 1st, Holotta and I took possession of Club 1220 and made our first rent payment, not knowing when we will be able to open up during these unprecedented times. 
So, now we are asking the community to help and support us as Club 1220 has supported the community. Holotta, I and Club 1220 have helped raise thousands of dollars over the years, helping multiple organizations. Now, this time, we need your help. 
Please, whatever you can spare, make a donation to make sure that Club 1220 is around for a long time to serve our community.
Thank You!
