The Native's Bartender Fund!

Donation protected
With the current climate of the covid-19 outbreak, all of us working in the bar and restaurant industry are being forced to close until at least March 30th. As a lot of you know, this community relies heavily on tips in order to pay for our rent, student loans, bills, etc. Although we realize that The Native is not the only bar to take to GoFundMe to help our staff with their finances, we want to offer something special to our donors. 

Our staff is equally bummed about having to social-distance ourselves, seeing as we all love to hang out with our customers. That being said, we want to include a series of "prizes" to anyone who is willing to donate to our cause. Additionally, we will be hosting a weekly Live Stream on Facebook and Instagram where you can hang out with our staff, ask us anything, and donate a few extra bucks to virtually drink with your favorite bartender. Please visit our social media sites for more information. 

As an additional thank you, here is a breakdown of things you will win by donating a specific amount to our staff: 

$10 - Free popcorn at The Native for life 
$20 - 2 Drink Tokens good for $8 or under (once we are fully open)
$50 - JP will eave you a sexy voicemail 
$75 - Framed Photo of Jared's Tramp Stamp
$100 - Topless photo of the male bartender of your choosing
$125 - Zaf will cook you dinner 
$150 - Mercurio will write a song for you
$200 - Curate the movies for our B-Movie Night on Sundays
$250 - Host your own DJ night

DM us on social media or email us at [email redacted] to claim your prize. 

Any amount you're able to donate will be extremely helpful to our staff.
We cannot thank you enough for your support and we can't wait to see you when we are officially open again. Please stay healthy and safe out there!
