Jon Rowley Needs Our Help

Dear Friends,

Our friend, dad, uncle, mentor, co-conspirator, Oyster-evangelist and food pioneer, Jon Rowley, is up against some very difficult health issues. Jon has been diagnosed with a terminal disease and needs assistance with medical care expenses. His daughter Megan is currently helping to care for him but does not have the resources to do so in the way he needs. She needs our help.

If you know Jon, you know how generous he is and he could use our generosity now. We hope to raise at least $50,000 and time is of the essence. Please donate what you can and spread the word. His daughter, family and friends are trying to keep him comfortable and ensure he has the care he requires. They will be ever grateful for your support.

Jon Rowley has given so much to this world and to all of us who have crossed his path - there aren't words to do justice to all he's contributed to the food world in Seattle and beyond.

Please consider a contribution to help with Jon's care. It will make a world of difference at a very tough time.
