Fundraiser for Geppetto’s Employees at Franklin Park on June 18th

On Wednesday, June 12th, Geppetto's Italian Bistro was devastated by a fire. Owners wish to rebuild due to the outpouring of community support, but that will take many months.

The entire staff is now unemployed, and a fundraiser has been set up to help them all in their financial need.
