on behalf of Debby Wilder
Ralph Wilder, a prominent Chicago-area conductor and musician and friend to many, was tragically injured when a piece of equipment fell on him during a rehearsal. Ralph's family is working non-stop to help him recover. This campaign is to help the Wilder family with expenses that come with caring for an injured loved one, such as hospital parking fees, meals, and compensating for missed work. The Wilder family is with Ralph around the clock and could use our help so they don't have to worry about anything but being together at this difficult time.

Hi everyone! Please see the information below from Jeff Wilder about a Benefit Concert for Ralph. Many musicians are taking part in this concert, including Ralph and his daughter, Debby! Thank you so much for your donations.

Benefit Concert - Monday, December 10th at 8pm
Journal entry by Jeff Wilder — Dec 4, 2018

Hi Everyone,

As you may or may not know, a very special Benefit Concert is being hosted by the Chicago Clarinet Ensemble in my dad's honor. This concert has evolved into something really unique and special. It will be filled with some of the top musicians and entertainment personalities in the entire Chicagoland area, including a performance by none other than my dad himself. That's right, Ralph Wilder plans to play a piece as well. Don't miss it! It's very rare that these Maestros / Virtuosos come together for a free admission concert.
(In lieu of admission fee, donation to the GoFundMe page is appreciated).
