Fundraiser Details

The owner of one of the few remaining great venues in Seattle, The Comet Tavern, abruptly closed the venue recently and in the process SHAT all over everyone who has ever loved this place! On top of that, this guy financially screwed over the one and only Mamma Casserole! If you know anything about this place or have been in a band that has played here, you know how much of this place was made possible by Michelle “Mamma Casserole” Smith.

Q. How did the owner screw her over financially?
A. "Her checks began bouncing, she says, and when she was offered money from the till, there was nothing there, either. “He essentially owes me $8000 in back wages,” Smith says."
- Seattle Weekly article by Gwendolyn Elliott

Update on Wednesday, October 16, 2013:
A quick THANK YOU to all supporters thus far! As the anonymous creator of this fundraiser, I wanted to add some further information I came across yesterday on The Comet Tavern Facebook page:

"All $$$ will go to supporting the Seattle music scene and Comet employees who have no source of income and no ability to collect unemployment."

Ok everyone, that's all I got for now, thanks again for your support!


--

Please help give back! 
*This was created 100% voluntarily by someone who wants nothing more than to see Mamma Casserole get something back in return for her many years of hard work that helped create one of the best venues in Seattle! My only hope is that we collect something that goes back into making what was once an awesome venue/scene/collective thrive again!

Hey all, the fundraiser is just a couple weeks away from being complete! We came no where near our goal of eight thousand dollars (ha!) but that's not entirely the point.. the point is/was, can something be done anonomously to help a shitty situation. So thank you for helping make this happen! Moving on, most of you know that some rich asshole bought The Comet and let's face it; it won't be the same. But regardless, thanks to everyone who chipped in! From the looks of it I will be cutting Mamma Casserole a check for three hundred and some change, nice work! It will be put to good use! I will provide her a list of names in addition to the cash, b/c you all deserve a pat on the back! Thanks once again, hugs to all.
