The Cutting Room Employee Relief Fund

This is an unprecedented time. Our hearts broke having to close our doors last week. Our passion is giving people the wonderful experience of live music, entertainment and special events and we regret that we are unable to do that during this time.

Unfortunately, this reality also means that all of our staff are now unemployed. Our kitchen staff, waitresses, busboys, bartenders, hostesses, production crew, admin staff - everyone that keeps us going day in and day out.  We are doing everything we can to support them during this difficult time. We have also created this fundraiser to try to provide them with some financial relief and assistance.

Many of you have already reached out, sending your positive energy, memories, hopes for the future and have asked how you can help. Know that we appreciate all of you and seeing your memories.

We’re humbly asking that any of our supporters who have the means, consider donating to our employee relief fund.

If you’re unable to donate, we’d be deeply grateful for you to share this fundraiser in any way you can.

***All donors will be added to the guestlist for the first month of our re-opening.***

When it is safe to re-open our doors, know we’re doing everything we can to ensure it will be an epic night for the books.

We thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts, for your continued support and patronage over the years.
