Two thousand four hundred twenty-three days. We have accomplished a lot in this time. We have made friends, loyal customers, gained an amazing team of employees who have become family. We worked hard, laughed a lot, and made a difference every chance we had. We have become a place of safety for the LGBTQ+ community, a melting pot for people from ALL walks of life…and their pets! We have celebrated victories, survived struggles, mourned losses and came together to help each other and the community.
Here’s a fun fact! In just under 7 years, Punky’s, with support from all of you, has raised over $150,000 through various fundraisers, including Charity Drag Bingo for over 100 local non-profit organizations. What an amazing accomplishment!
Punky’s has been such a joy for so many people, but she is ready to retire… gracefully. Punky’s has closed our doors as of this morning, Wednesday, August 3rd, 2022.
Lynn and John would like to thank EVERYONE who supported Punky’s since we opened on December 15th, 2015. It has truly been an amazing journey. We are honored that you chose to support Punky’s and we will cherish our friendships and all of the memories that we made together.
To all of our employees, past and present, YOU have helped make Punky’s the amazing place that it was. We would not have made it this far without you. We are forever grateful for all that you have done.
To all of our customers, short and sweet…THANK YOU! You are the BEST OF THE BEST.
Now, we are sure that many of you are very worried about our Punksters. Please know that they are family to us and we are providing solid leads for new work place opportunities for them to consider. We will also be distributing our remaining food inventory to them and anything left after that will be donated to charitable organizations who will be able to distribute it to folks in need.
Speaking of family, we can’t forget our amazing Georgia Moore! We are excited to announce that she will continue with her Bingo events and SMASHING her fundraising goals at a new location, very nearby, to be revealed soon!
It has been an honor and a privilege to serve you all! We will miss you.
