Logjam Contributing $100,000 to Support Employees
You likely have friends and family in the service and/or entertainment industry who are being affected by the closures of bars and cancellations of concerts. Many of us live paycheck to paycheck and missed tips can mean not being able to pay the rent, or having to choose between medications and groceries. With that said, Nick and Robin Checota have shared the following letter regarding the well being of all Logjam Presents Employees.
As many of you know, the Logjam Presents venues, and the Top Hat Restaurant, have been ordered closed due to the Coronavirus epidemic. These closures have essentially eliminated all shifts for almost 200 hourly Logjam and Top Hat employees.
To combat this hardship, Logjam has established a “Supplemental Income Fund” to support our committed crew. The goal of the fund will be to provide financial assistance to those staff members in need. Robin and I have committed an initial $100,000 to establish this fund.
For those concert customers who would like to support this effort, please consider donating any outstanding purchased ticket of a cancelled or postponed show back to Logjam. Logjam will in-turn contribute 100 percent of the proceeds to support our hourly staff. Any consideration would be greatly appreciated. In addition to the above, we have established a GoFundMe campaign. We appreciate many others are facing difficult times, but if you are in a financial position and feel compelled to support, 100 percent of the net earnings of all contributions will go directly to staff in need.
If you would like to contribute a purchased ticket to a canceled or postponed show, please contact Alisha or Makenzie at the Top Hat Box Office, (406) 830-4640, or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please know, this is not a requirement. If you are seeking a refund for a canceled or postponed show, that can still be processed at the Box Office.
