The Gravity Gaming Lounge, located in downtown Kenosha, was among multiple small businesses that were destroyed during civil unrest two days ago.

Gamer and YouTuber Jeremy Hambly decided to create a GoFundMe to help with the lounge’s damage costs.

Hambly has estimated damages to be around $50,000 after extensive external and internal damage was done to the lounge.

According to Hambly, 8 Xboxes, 8 PS4 Pros, multiple computer monitors, and other equipment were all destroyed during the unrest.

The GoFund me is currently at $68,000, nearing the $80,000 estimated for damages.

Since viewing the GoFundMe, owners of the gaming lounge have decided to reopen the lounge, according to Hambly.

Hambly has also transferred the GoFundMe account to the lounge owners.
