Memorial Dinner for David Marc Fischer (Gluten-Free NYC)
At the beginning of August, we lost a very important part of our Celiac Community. David Marc Fischer, author of Gluten-Free NYC and active member of The New York City Celiac Disease Meetup Group since 2004 (DavidF on our message boards), passed away from a very sudden and aggressive form of leukemia. David will be greatly missed, and remembered for his friendliness, intelligence, and sincere contributions to the celiac community.

We would like to honor David with a memorial dinner at one of David’s favorite GFRAP restaurants, Lilli & Loo. For those of you that were friends with David, you will remember that David was a big supporter of GFRAP and usually only dined at a restaurant in their program to ensure a safe, gluten-free meal. You can see two of his Lilli and Loo blog postings here: http://glutenfreenyc.blogspot.com

Please note, although this is a meetup dinner we are gathering to remember David as his friends, fans, and family. There will be an opportunity for you all to share thoughts about David during the meal as well as make a donation in his honor to the Celiac Disease Center. I am also collecting blog postings, quotes, and general comments about David Marc Fischer to be shared on the night of the memorial dinner. If you have anything you would like added to this collection, please email me directly. Please RSVP here: http://www.meetup.com/Celiac/calendar/11218766/

For those of you who cannot make the dinner, you can donate online in David’s honor at https://giving.columbia.edu/giveonline/
Use the "Select a School or Division" drop down box, and select Celiac Disease Center. You will be able to specify on the next page that the gift is in memory of David Marc Fischer, and a note will be sent to the family.
