One Upper Peninsula bar/restaurant has submitted a video in hopes to receive some needed financial help from Dave Portnoy’s Barstool Fund.
In a post on Instagram, DIGS Marquette, has applied for the Fund Wednesday stating how it meant for them to receive help and what they did to help out their community in the process.
The video above states that the establishment has helped the community out in any way, since the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic began last year. The owners said they also have an entertainment business of their own, and between that and operating DIGS, they’re losing 95% of profit due to the pandemic.
Also from the time of their opening in March 2017, they have raised over $100,000 for charities and non-profit organizations as well.
“We join literally every small business in saying absolutely f*** COVID-19,” DIGS said in their caption. “It’s probably one in a million change we’ll get selected for the @barstoolfund – but we’ve gotta try.”
Since it started last December, the Barstool Fund is now close to eclipsing $19 million in funds with the help of over 151,000 supporters and contributors across the United States.
Famous contributors to the Fund include NFL quarterback Tom Brady, rapper/singer and entrepreneur Kid Rock, motivational speaker Gary ‘Vee’ Vaynerchuk, celebrity chef Guy Fieri, stock trader Mason Riley, and many more.
