New Deal Cafe Fundraising Auction

September 20
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 2:00 am, repeating until September 26, 2020

Free
Events - <p>The New Deal Cafe is a community supported; member owned Cooperative. They have been hit particularly hard by the closing of the music venue on March 17th. Like so many other small businesses, they are pursuing many resources to stay viable until they can bring back live local music. This fundraiser is our way of supporting New Deal during this unprecedented time. If you have ever been to New Deal Cafe (and we know many of you have), you know that there is never a cover charge, only donations to pay the musicians. Yet, the musicians keep coming back and many have offered items for the auction like music lessons or private concerts in your backyard.
We have so many amazing and eclectic items up for auction and we hope that you will all check out the preview from 9/1 - 9/5 at: www.32auctions.com/newdealcafe. We know you will be back to bid on something you just cannot live without. Every dollar raised goes to the New Deal Cafe so we can keep it rockin' for years to come.</p>
