On Friday, January 14, husband, father, bandmate and friend to many, Chuck Platt, was hit by a car while crossing the street outside of his restaurant, The Crepe Place.
While Chuck gratefully does not have any life-threatening injuries, he has sustained life-altering injuries that will have a significant impact to him physically and financially. Chuck was airlifted to a Bay Area Hospital where he is currently being treated. Chuck sustained the following injuries: right ankle break, left knee injury, broken collar bone, and lacerations to his face and hands. His right ankle and knee injuries were extensive and will require surgery(s) and rehabilitation.
He is in good spirits and he had surgery on Saturday, January 15th...which we are hearing had a positive outcome...more updates to come...
We are blown away by the love and support Chuck and his family have received in such a short amount of time. After having time to get bearings on the overall situation Chuck and Vanessa feel the amount of money that has been raised will be enough to help him and his family get through this and we are ending the fundraiser. The funds raised will go far in allowing him to get back on his feet...thank you so much for your generosity and concern for Chuck!
From Chuck's wife Vanessa: "Chuck and I would like to thank everyone of who contributed to this fund. We are overwhelmed by your generosity! We always knew we were a part of a special community. We have just experienced the love first hand, not only with these donations but also through the phone calls, personal messages of encouragements, offers to help, and thoughts and prayers ).
These funds will help us with the medical bills and rehabilitation costs as well as the next couple of months where Chuck is immobilized and unable to work."
We all want to see Chuck’s smiling face back at his restaurant, onstage and around our community. Thank you!
