Desperate Times for BJE Staff

Personal message

BlackJack Events Waiters, Barmen, Chefs and Porters need your help.

The 200+ waiters, barmen, chefs and porters of BlackJack Events from Gauteng some who have been with us for over 15 years - are struggling to make ends meet since the banning of all events, large meetings and gatherings were announced due to the Coronavirus.

They rely solely on hourly wages and tips to survive and support their families, and with the sudden loss of income without any warning they are in dire straits.

We are hoping that with the help of the kind-hearted and generous individuals out there that we can assist them with funds to purchase food and basic necessities for themselves and their families.

All donations that come in will be split amongst these staff in order for them to live during this very difficult period in our industry.

You can follow our progress here.

The funds will be paid into the BlackJack Events company account and will be paid to the staff by the Director of the company.
