I have known Kathy and Richard Whitman since 1970 when we were freshman at the University of Illinois. We have kept in touch throughout the years at both sad and joyous times in our lives. It was devastating for them both to lose Bob at such a young age to cancer. They took that sadness and created a charity for cancer research that celebrates Bob's life and helps many afflicted with the disease. I feel like I have gotten to know Bob myself through this yearly fundraising event replete with friends, family, food and great music. I think the character of the Bob Whitman Research Foundation reflects the character of Kathy and Richard. Words that come to mind are strength, commitment, caring, vision and love!

Sincerely,

Lynn Wendt

Excellent, targeted donations from this family-sponsored foundation. The family has suffered from various cancers and other ilnesses. Donations are distributed efficiently to specific organizations for specific reasons. They do an excellent job.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Publicize recipients of distirbutions more widley.

The Bob Whitman Research Foundation was created by the two surviving members of a family that has been devastated by cancer with the goal of memorializing their loved ones by raising money to support cancer research. The primary fundraiser for 13 years is a music based event prresented with volunteer talent that attracts donors who enjoy the show and value the committment of the founders and their board, who are known personally by most of the attendees.
