Pete's Fund for The Appetite Repair Shop
Organized by: peter vazquez
the purpose of raising these funds is to pay for the electrical upgrades in my first startup business since losing my restaurant in Hurricane Katrina. That cost me everything I had worked my whole life for and I have floated through state to state ...job closings, bordered on homelessness and lived ( and still live) with the scars of seeing my entire city destroyed as well as what I had given my life too. I scraped enough money together to move back to New Orleans then the job I came back for, closed. All in all close to 10 years of unrelenting struggle. I started cooking out of my house. I created a great following but still..just couldn't get ahead. A spot appeared and through the very generous donations of friends and customers..I was able to start on an actual business. It was discovered that the entire electrical system needed upgrading. This was a totally unforeseen expense and there simply is no money for the repairs. I am too far long to turn back now!.... I am worried beyond words that this setback will result in another life and soul destroying situation..in the same place the first one happened. I am hoping people can understand my situation, and would be willing to help achieve this goal and end what seems like an eternal fall from grace. I simply want the chance to build a great business again.
