The Broadway, like all other bars and venues in New York City, was forced to close its doors over a week ago due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of our staff of 30+ relied on our business as their sole source of income and our currently left without one for the foreseeable future.
Through our short ten months of existence, The Broadway has continually strived to be a fair, caring, and welcoming employer, space, and stage for performers. Striking that balance has always been difficult and now we are unfortunately tasked with trying to navigate how to continue to keep a roof over our heads, reopen when this whole mess is finally over, and still find a way to take care of our own.
We know that a lot of people need help right now, a lot of businesses are in need right now, and a lot of people are hurting right now. We love our staff dearly and want to do anything that we can to help them in this time of uncertainty. Because of that, we are forced to ask for your help.
In order to encourage donations, The Broadway will be providing a chance at incentives for each donor of $10, with additional chances for every additional $10 donated.
- 20 contributors, selected at random, will receive free entry with a plus one to a show of their choice along with four free drink tickets
- 3 contributors will receive free pool games for a year
- 2 contributors will receive a brand new pair of Marshall’s latest ANC noise-cancelling headphones
In addition, we will be providing a chance to receive free show entry for an entire calendar year to every donor of $100. Similarly, every $100 donated will get you another chance to win.
For every person that donates any amount, thank you! 100% of proceeds will be going to our staff. They need it more than ever.
We hope you are all safe & still somewhat sane. We can get through this together. <3
