As you all well know, the Human Coronavirus, or COVID-19, has created a very challenging situation for our community and the world as a whole. We want to reassure you that your health and safety are our top priority. With that in mind, we have decided to cancel our 9th annual Stand Up and Cheer luncheon, which was scheduled for April 21. Though we will not meet together, we will be holding an online campaign to keep you updated about the progress we've made over the past year, which has been significant, and give you an opportunity to continue your support of our amazing Scholars.
In the weeks to come, you will receive a number of emails, and see blog posts and social media posts featuring testimonials from a number of our partners, and messages from our students about the importance of our work and why we need you to continue to support it.
The Stand Up and Cheer fundraising luncheon represents a significant portion of our budget. Though we have canceled the event out of concern for your health, it is key to our health as an organization that you continue to show up and to show up big, as you have done in years past.
Though we may not be able to gather in one room and celebrate together, we can all Stand Up and Cheer from a distance. I thank you in advance for your continued support.
With much love and gratitude,
