Dear Fighting Children's Cancer Foundation Family & Friends,
We have been closely monitoring the evolving situation regarding the coronavirus over the past several days. Health experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advise limiting close and personal interactions and refraining from attending "large gatherings" during this time.
The Fighting Children's Cancer Foundation is extremely sensitive to the social environment and the health and well-being of our supporters, volunteers, and the children and families the Foundation serves. In light of this current health situation, the Foundation has made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone our March 28th Gala.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but it would be irresponsible for the Foundation to go against CDC recommendations ~ your health and safety have to come first. We will communicate the rescheduled date for our Annual Gala as soon as it is available.
The Annual Gala, as many of you know, is our largest fundraiser of the year and sets the stage for the support we are able to provide children and families in crisis throughout the year. Your registration for the Gala will be applied to the new date, and we will work hard to make this event, when it occurs, a wonderful, meaningful, and enjoyable evening.
Please reach out to Andrea Inauen, Executive Director, at 908-429-2121 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
For more information about coronavirus and how to protect yourself and your family, please see Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) – About Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
Thank you for your understanding, support, and heart-felt care. Please, stay healthy and safe, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
