NOTICE FROM HELPMEDONATE.ORG:
We received information that people on Social Media are spreading rumors that this fundraiser is not real and that the funds will not be used for reopening the Waterin Trough. We have verified with the owner of this club that he fully intends to reopen the club and is seeking donations in order to do so. He noted that someone apparently hacked into their facebook page, removed him as administrator, and posted negative comments, as The Waterin Trough. He further stated that he is behind on bills such as taxes, licenses, etc. due to several months of closure.
THE OWNER MAY OWE MONEY FROM TAX DEBTS, LICENSE RENEWALS, ETC, BUT AFFIRMS THAT THE $50K HE IS TRYING TO RAISE WILL BE ENOUGH TO OPEN THE DOORS TO THE NIGHTCLUB.
Regardless of whether you donate, please try and be kind. This site is designed to HELP people in various states of need. We are amending his information below to reflect that funds necessary are due to delinquencies in payments, not Covid-19. We do not believe he was intending to hurt or scam anyone. The Waterin Trough has been a popular club in Pinellas County, Florida for many years and as it has been explained to us, the owner simply seeks help to get it reopen - HelpMeDonate
In the weeks before Covid-19 hit Florida, Waterin Trough country nightclub (the leading and largest country nightclub in Pinellas county) closed due to burst pipes and renovations(including a new bar and all new dancefloor). A place where people from all over could learn to dance at dance classes, watch a concert, enjoy a nightclub feel while listening to good ol' country, or get in trouble with our sink or swim in a fun, safe environment.
Bills have piled up, including taxes and licenses. 100% of funds received will be used to pay bills and help reopen!
Frankly, we miss it, our staff misses it, and we miss partying with you. Never did we think we'd be asking for help, but if you've ever come and had the best night out with us, making incredible memories, and want to keep making those happen again in this dark time, please help us meet our goal to reopen. We promise to get back to serving you the best night out, with plenty of memories for years to come!
