Tips 4 Izaak

On Friday, August 10th, after completing his day shift at Cherry Street Restaurant, Izaak Platt  struck a vehicle that missed a stop sign on US 150 while riding his beloved Kawasaki motorcycle home.  Izaak suffered extensive injuries, including multiple facial fractures requiring facial reconstruction surgeries, both arms were broken at the humerus, multiple rib fractures as well as fracturing the T7, T8. T9 vertebrae with potential spinal cord damage.
Izaak has been a staple around the Galesburg bar and restaurant scene for almost a decade.  Never one to not have a smile on his face, he has served the community at Mcgillicuddy's, the 'Silver Age" of the Seminary St. Pub, Buffalo Wild Wings, Fat Fish Pub and Cherry Street Restaurant & Bar. 
He and his family need some extra help for time missed from work, traveling back and forth to OSF St. Francis as well as expenses that will arise to help Izaak recover from injuries.
Izaak has served the community for birthdays, weddings, engagements, football games, reunions, anniversaries,  nights out, first dates, nights that couples have met, and every other conceivable reason for being out on the town.
