100 Lafayette Circle Fire

Aug 15, 2017

July 23, 2017

To the victims of the fire at 100 Lafayette Circle and those that might give benefit to those attending:

The Lafayette Chamber of Commerce had the pleasure of being a tenant at 100 Lafayette Circle since 1992.  I moved in April of 2005.  Although I never really got to know all of you, I certainly recognize you and I recognize the pain you must be going through right now.  Working hard and having passion for what we do in business did not stop the fire from raging through the buildings.  No matter how prepared we might have been for a disaster we have lost not only our“stuff” but a part of our life as well.  We will all experience our loss in many different ways.  It is the hope of our Board of Directors that perhaps we can help you through some of the obstacles you will experience over the next few months. 

Here is what we propose:

  • We have prepared for a very informal meeting for all business owners and employees of the businesses located at 100 Lafayette Circle. We have asked representatives to join us and give you answers to some of the questions you most likely have.Our guest will include
    • SBA Loan expert that will discuss option including Emergency Business Loans
    • A representative from Workforce Development to help place you and your staff in new jobs
    • We have invited our mayor and city manager
    • We have invited Barry and Bret Bennett ( our property managers)
  • This will give us all a chance to ask questions.
  • In addition we will have a member of the Lafayette Community Foundation to introduce a Fund that they will manage to help youcosts that exceed your insurance coverage.

 

The devastating fire that ripped through100 Lafayette Circle on July 13, 2017, destroyed nine Lafayette businesses including the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce and La Finestra restaurant. LCF has set up a general Fire Relief Fund to assist the businesses that were affected by the fire. The money collected will help cover expenses that will not be covered by insurance and help those businesses get back up and running as quickly as possible. This fund will remain active until December 31, 2017.

You can donate online by clicking the Fire Relief button or by sending a check to: Lafayette Community Foundation, P.O. Box 221, Lafayette, CA 94549. When writing a check, please indicate that your donation is for the Fire Relief Fund. Please do not specify a particular business as the IRS rules do not allow donations to be designated for specific individuals.
