There’s no place like ROAM… and sadly, right now there is NO place for the ROAM team to work.

ROAM, located at 210 E River Drive Davenport, which proudly identifies as “A revival of bespoke spaces of times gone by, where people come together to share a love for the Zen of motorcycle repair, the open road, and a good drink,” encountered disaster on Tuesday Apr 30. Within less than six minutes after the tragic failing of the HESCO barrier, ROAM was under water.

The businesses at London Place in Davenport (Bella Salon, Catherine’s + Paul’s for Men, Bettendorf Chiropractic Wellness Center, The Bag Broker, Bello Barber and Family Care Solutions Home Health & Supports) have joined forces to create the ultimate event to help ROAM staff members who have been displaced and are out of work until ROAM is up and running again.

Floodapalooza will take place on Saturday May 11 from 4 – 9 p.m. at London Place (4893 Utica Ridge Road Davenport). A recommended donation of at least $25 can be made in order to attend, at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/roam-floodapalooza-2019-employee-benefit-tickets-61405294890.

This kid-friendly event will include live music, silent auctions, raffles, t-shirts by WOD THREADS, Cushman Food Truck, Streets of Italy, face painting, bounce house and more!
