Remembering Romaine Brooks

by Charlottesville29


Time and again when someone in the Charlottesville food community needs help, others rush to provide it. Recently, one of Charlottesville’s favorite servers unexpectedly lost his life, leaving his family in great need. In addition to their grieving, his family faces funeral expenses and other unexpected fees from Brooks’ death. Brooks’ employer, co-workers, and friends are banding together to help fill these needs. Any funds raised beyond the immediate needs will be placed in a trust for Brooks’ children.

The Whiksey Jar, where Brooks worked, has donated $1,500 to the cause, and Tavola has also made a generous donation. Let’s follow their lead and show the Brooks family Charlottesville’s love in their time of need. Make your donation here.
