Winters Jazz Club - Surviving Covid Shutdown #2

Dear friends of Winter's,

The good news... with kind help from our many supporters we've survived the last 6 months despite being closed with no revenue and we're still here!  

The not-as-good news... the fight isn't over and so we're launching another fundraiser to help us make it until spring when hopefully we can reopen and once again present great Live Jazz on our stage.

As you may know we're still closed by mandate from the City of Chicago (at the time of campaign launch) and, unfortunately, we've reached the point of having to decide to scrap the rest of 2020.  With decreased capacity restrictions (once clubs/taverns are allowed to reopen) it just wouldn't be prudent to try reopening while approaching the slowest time of the year. 

So our goal is to raise enough money to see us through until spring. 

Skipping winter at Winter's seems wrong... but we know it's the right thing to do in these trying circumstances. 

We sincerely thank all those who supported us previously and we are extremely grateful to any and all supporters who may choose to make a contribution now to help give us a fighting chance to endure. 

Team Winter's misses all of our wonderful patrons and musicians and we hope to see you on the other side of this!  Please stay safe and healthy.

With great thanks,
