Portalli's Italian Restaurant
Can you help after the devastating flood destroyed a local business?
| https://www.gofundme.com/supportportallis |
On July 30th, historic Ellicott City was devastated by historic flash flooding. This storm claimed two lives and countless businesses on Main Street. Among the businesses destroyed was Portallis which is owned and operated by our good friends Evan Brown, Alan & Lee Biars, Keith Holsey and Jame Ingles.
For those of you that don’t know them, their character is most easily exemplified by the fact that their first concern after digesting the reality of the situation was the financial well-being of their employees that have faithfully served the restaurant since its opening in 2006. This at face value is telling enough, but layer on the fact that losses incurred to replace items destroyed in the restaurant are not covered by insurance, and you get a peek into the type of men they are.
Due to their humble nature, they would NEVER ask for help. For that reason, we have organized this Go Fund Me page to help them provide for the employees that will be displaced from work indefinitely. 100% of the proceeds will go directly towards supporting the line cooks, bartenders, dishwashers, chefs and servers that have contributed to the family atmosphere that countless patrons have experience over the years. To the extent that we raise enough to support the displaced employees, we will donate the remaining proceeds to help absorb the significant property losses that Portalli's has incurred.
No donation is too small! These Go Fund Me pages are powered by word of mouth and small donations quickly accumulate to amounts that are truly impactful.
It’s situations like these that highlight the strength of our community and what is possible when we work together for a common cause. Let’s seize this opportunity to show the Portallis family that they have our loyal support during the challenging road ahead!
