Dom DelBene has been the heartbeat of The Carlton Restaurant for the past 28 years.  The familiar face and rock behind our bar, Dom has been wowing guests with his unbelievable recall of drink preferences and his overall superior level of hospitality.  Many of you have been asking about Dom - wondering about his surgery and recovery and asking about when he might return.  Dom's Open Heart surgery in July was successful but not without complications.  He has been re-hospitalized twice since his initial release and his recovery is going much slower than anticipated.  We do not yet know a date for his return.  The slower recovery has certainly been a financial burden on him and his family.  Additionally, his wife Michele has had to miss much work during this difficult time.

Today, we are setting up a Go Fund Me page to assist Dom and his family during this difficult time.  If you feel inclined to help in even a very small way - we would be very grateful.

Thank You!

This donation is in honor of Laura Ellsworth who had the winning number for a Carlton Wine Dinner for 8 from the Dominick DelBene fundraiser! Laura - who is an outstanding example of a leader who knows how to give back - donated the proceeds back to Dom! We appreciate her generosity and that of the entire firm of Jone's Day lawyers that have been so supportive of Dom's recovery!
