SHERMAN OAKS, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The community has rallied behind a Sherman Oaks restaurant owner who posted an emotional video on social media expressing her anger and frustration over the closure of her business after new COVID-19 rules went into effect.

Over $185,000 has been donated to the "Help the Pineapple Hill Saloon" GoFundMe page to assist the owner, Angela Marsden.

Marsden has owned the Pineapple Hill Saloon and Grill for 10 years and says she spent thousands setting up an outdoor dining area, but was forced to close after L.A. County's outdoor dining ban went into effect.
