Help Support Rob Shumate

Organized by: Derek Kolb

THE STORY:

Robert, who has been a fixture in River North's restaurant industry for a decade, was recently diagnosed with Primary Mediastinal B Cell Lymphoma. Due to medical complications and precautions, he will be unable to return to work for several more months. 

Along with this website we are hosting an event at Three Aces on January 18th in Rob's honor. The event will be a chance to hang out and talk with a bunch of Rob's friends and possibly even get a visit from the guest of honor himself. Throughout the night there will multiple raffles as well as an auction, with items ranging from restaurant gift certificates to VIP passes to a Blackhawks private event. I'll provide more details for the event below. If you're not able to make it to the event, this website is the perfect way to show your support. If you would prefer an even more direct approach with helping I will provide my information at the bottom of this or you can come into Quartino where we have been collecting envelopes of donations on Rob's behalf.

We really hope you can give a little to Rob. If you're reading this you probably already know what an incredible guy he is. He's most likely gone out of his way to do something nice for all of us at some point or at least been there for us in some way that we've needed him. Anything you can do would mean so much to him. We look forward to seeing you at the event or just showing your support in any way you can for Rob. For those of you that don't know me, I'm a bartender at Quartino who has worked along side with Rob for the past three years. His other friends Holly and Ivana have played an intregal role in setting up the benefit event and researching this website to find ways to help our friend. Happy holidays and a beautiful new year to all of you.
