Pour House Hurricane Flo Repair

$12,166 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 131 people in 10 months
Hey everyone, my name is Joe Apkarian and I own The Pour House in downtown Wilmington. The little basement bar that so many different characters call home.

So The Pour House has been shut down now over a week, we have sustained water, electric and some appliance damage from Hurricane Florence. We’ve lost a lot of beer and such due to the temps and we are still paying our bills and taxes with our saved funds but with nothing coming in and continued flooding we are in a bit of trouble.

Any help is  greatly appreciated, and if you can’t, no worries, everyone is dealing with damages right now.
Money will be used on:
Water damage
Professional cleaning to fight mold damage
Money to staff who have been out of work
Service to and replacement of keg coolers
new sump pumps

Do we have insurance? Yes, we do, however it will not cover everything and no idea when that will be handled.

Don’t we have money saved? We did, it’s running out.

Thank you very much,

Joe Apkarian

Thank you all so much for your support. I can't tell you how much I, along with my staff, appreciate the help.
We are up and running again, albeit we have a lot of work to do. In the coming weeks we will be replacing the ice machine, at least one keg cooler, a desk in the back, some metal framing, and possibly the entire back bar area. You heard that right, the water and mold did some serious damage to some parts of the bar that may make us have to fully replace sections behind the bar.
Also, because of your help the staff will be getting some money that they absolutely need after not working for 12 days.

Anyhow, I wanted to post an update and thank you all again for helping The Pour House. It means the world to see the support we get. Thank you.
