In less than 24 hours, Fred’s Restaurant exceeded the $50,000 fundraising goal which was initiated to help the owners rebuild their coveted bar and restaurant after suffering from a devastating dining room fire.
As of writing, they’ve raised $63,205 from 722 donors, some of whom made generous donations of $1,000!
We are overwhelmed by your generosity- your emotional support and donations have left us speechless – and for David, that is sayin’ something! Even though we have hit our goal, we would like to continue the campaign and we promise that every additional penny we collect, will be used to keep as many of our staff employed as we can, as we rebuild. There are a lot of unknowns right now, and we don’t know how long rebuilding will take. Our goal is to open as soon as we are able to for delivery, and then once the world is back to normal, we can begin to start anew.
With our humble thanks, we are very lucky indeed!
David & Kim
