Our community is heartbroken by the fire that destroyed The Lumber Yard Bar and affected multiple businesses in downtown White Center the night of July 4th, 2021. The Lumber Yard Bar has been a passion project for Nathan Adams and Michale Farrar and has provided a safe gathering space for the LGBTQIA+ community since opening in 2017.
Covid-19 was already challenging enough for the business. After multiple forced lockdowns, reduced capacity, implementing saftey measures, having to lay off their staff, and just starting to reopen to semi-normal capacity, this fire was crushing for Nathan & Michale.
Please consider partnering with White Center Pride and donate to help The Lumber Yard Bar recover from this devastating fire. All donations will go to Nathan and Michale for them to use however needed.
