Resources for Bartenders & Hospitality Workers, Coronavirus / COVID-19 Bar Restaurant Closures

It is because of bar and restaurant acceptance that Bloody Gerry has grown from a passion project into a company and it is because of creative bartenders that have supported us that we continue to be inspired and motivated.
With the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic closing of many bars and restaurants across the U.S. and in Venice, the hospitality industry, along with the lives of the workers within it, is changing in unprecedented ways. To support our friends and colleagues through this tough time we've compiled a list of relief funds and aid groups for bartenders and hospitality workers. We're also donating 10% of our sales or a minimum of $100 to Another Round, Another Rally that gives $500 grants to bartenders and hospitality workers who lost their jobs or had their hours cut because of the virus.
We will continue to update this post as more resources are shared and events unfold. If you would like to share information with us about a relief fund or resource, please send an email to jenn@bloodygerry.com
