Support for the Sundown staff

As you are all well aware, we are closing the bar for the foreseeable future.  Things have moved so fast in the past couple of days with the covid-19 emergency in our city, and it’s totally surreal to know that sundown will be sitting empty without the liveliness and warmth that the bartenders and you have created here.
To ensure the health and safety of our staff we are setting up this fund of which 100% of the contribution goes to them to be split evenly. Nothing will go towards the business operations or owners.
We want you to find the same healthy lovely smiling faces serving you when all this passes and you’re back at Sundown .
You have made our first two years so rewarding and hopeful, and are very thankful for your support of our little bar and the friends and community that have grown around it.
We love our staff and want to help them adjust to this sudden shocker of finding themselves without work. I hope that this fund for the Sundown staff can serve as a way of supporting your local community and contribute to the health and wellbeing of those who work here. Please take care of yourselves and as we all shoulder the burden of flat-lining this thing, we have deep hope that as strange as things are gonna be coming out of this, we will find you happy and healthy.
John, Jaime, & Ashley
