Event to be held Friday, January 30th from 5pm-9pm
A few days ago, word spread that Parker’s on Ponce Steakhouse was gearing up for a fundraiser to help their friends over at 5th Earl Market. Last week, a fare started over at Trackside Tavern, neighbor to the 5th. That fire did some serious damage (image via pdf). Well, on the heels of last nights humbling, yet successful fundraiser (internal) in honor of John Henderson, the gang at Parker’s is spreading the love! Map, event details, and message from the David and Brian after the jump.
Dear Friends of the 5th Earl,
As many of you know, the 5th Earl Market suffered severe damage due to a fire last week that started next door at Trackside Tavern. Thankfully, no one was injured; however, the damage is extensive. Due to the condition of our space, the 5th Earl Market will be closed for business until we are able to rebuild.
This rebuild will take several months, and one of the most important things to us is to retain our wonderful, hardworking and dedicated staff. Most of our team has been with us since we opened two years ago, and it is our goal to re-open with these same people, as they truly are the ones who make the 5th Earl experience what it is.
We will be hosting a fundraiser THIS Friday, Jan 30th from 5-9 pm at Parker’s on Ponce. 116 E. Ponce De Leon Ave. Decatur, GA 30030. They will be graciously donating a portion of the evening’s proceeds to the 5th Earl Market Employee Fund. Join us for a drink or bite to eat in the bar. We’ll all be there.
In addition, bartenders will be accepting checks on our behalf or donations can be sent via mail to:
5th Earl Employee Fund
Decatur First Bank
Attn: Ann Berg
1120 Commerce Drive
Decatur, GA 30030
Thank you all for your nice emails and calls-the support we have received has been
uplifting. We look forward to seeing you all on Friday.
David & Brian
