Ward Eight Staff Fund

The staff of Ward Eight will be missing our friends and neighbors dearly until we are allowed to reopen the bar. As owners we greatly appreciate the dedication of our employees and feel like our beloved staff is such an integral part of the comfortable neighborhood ambiance we strive to create every evening. 

We are hoping to be able to support our staff throughout this mandatory closure period. All donations will be distributed quickly and equitably between our hourly staff.

You are also welcome to support Ward Eight by purchasing gift cards through the link below.
