Remembering Bob Pascal
The Chicago Lighthouse mourns the loss of Bob Pascal, Board Member and incredible supporter of the communities we serve. Bob served as a member of our Board of Directors from 2012-2016 before transitioning to be a Board Member of our independent affiliate nonprofit, Chicago Lighthouse Industries. Bob remained a member of the Lighthouse Industries Board until his recent passing.
Bob took his commitment to our mission to new heights in 2012 when he hosted a “Skydive Fundraiser” in celebration of his 75th birthday. For the fundraiser, Bob pledged to skydive from a height equal to the amount he raised. Through this brave and creative effort, Bob raised more than $14,000 for our programs and services. “Bob went above and beyond our community – figuratively and literally,” says Dr. Janet Szlyk, President and CEO of The Chicago Lighthouse. “We will fondly remember him and his extraordinary generosity.”
