This event has been postponed. The health and safety of our community is of the utmost importance to us. As such, in light of recent recommendations issued by the Centers for Disease Control and state guidelines regarding the spread of COVID-19, we have made the difficult but prudent decision to postpone our annual gala to the tentative date of June 13, 2020. If you have already purchased a ticket, please rest assured that your ticket will remain valid on the postponed gala date. In the meantime, we plan to activate some of our auction and fundraising activities online in the next couple of weeks to maintain the momentum around our 20th anniversary.
