Rob Fernandez, event promoter and a key architect of the New York nightlife scene, died on July 10, 2015.
He was a primary figure in the city's entertainment culture for 25 years. Dubbed the "King of New York," Fernandez's inventive parties, keen eye for trends and talent, and generosity to stars, peers and upstarts alike made him a beloved figure throughout the global music industry. He was the music director of Pacha New York, the first North American outpost of the storied Ibiza nightclub. As a partner in RPM Presents, an event promotion company, he brought mega-festival Electric Daisy Carnival to New York and hosted events with artists like Skrillex, Avicii and Swedish House Mafia, often in iconic venues like Central Park, Radio City Music Hall and Barclays Center.

Rob was the loving father of his bright-eyed son Rian.
We know Rian's education was Rob's paramount concern. We have started this fund to provide for Rian's education in the absence of Rob. This fund is sanctioned by Rian's mom Viviana, as well as Rob's mom Sharon and his sisters Kim and Laurie. This fund will be properly handled by the trustees of Rob's estate.

Thank you for your love and support.

On this day, one year ago, we said goodbye to our amazing and beloved Rob.
Hearts are heavy.
The outpouring of love and support these past 12 months has truly been a blessing and the new bonds that have been made are another reminder of Rob's bright spirit.
On behalf of Rob's mom Sharon, his sisters Kim and Laurie, his partner Viviana and their son Rian, we wanted to thank you for your generosity to donating to our GoFundMe campaign as well as your donations of time, talent and money to the amazing Sept 15th "House of Rob" benefit.
The Robert Fernandez Memorial Trust was set up through legal channels and the IRS and all funds raised have been transferred into the Trust. The Trust's main purpose is to assist with the well-being and education of Rian Fernandez and the well-being of Rob's family in general if needed.

Thank you for showing Rob that "We got this"!!!!

with gratitude and love,
Sharon, Viviana, Rian, Kim, Laurie and Kevin
