FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RE: Habitat for Humanity of Worcester County Winter White Gala Postponement
It is with great dismay that we must postpone the Winter White Gala scheduled to be held on Saturday, December 2, due to logistical challenges beyond our control.
We were privileged to join forces with the Taylor House Museum for this year’s event. We always welcome the opportunity to work with other non profits for a common purpose. The Taylor House Museum is gearing up to become a wonderful wedding and event venue in Berlin, and we hoped to be able to showcase the location by holding our annual gala on their lawn, and celebrate the unwavering spirit our community has for giving back, especially at this time of year.
There are always anticipated challenges when holding an outdoor event in December. We expected to be able to circumvent any issues in an accessible and affordable manner. Unfortunately, we were unable to procure an attainable solution given the time of year and the condition of the ground as a result. Any commitment you make to an event we hold is to be dispersed towards our mission to support families in our community, not towards event logistics. We therefore had to make the very hard decision to postpone our event.
While we would love the opportunity to celebrate with all of you this holiday season at a winter gala, we feel it is in the best interest for all that we postpone this fundraiser until the spring. We hope to be able to announce an exact date shortly after the New Year.
We are grateful to our staff, our event committee, our volunteers, and sponsors. We really can’t say enough about the level of commitment from our restaurant partners.
For all of you who hoped to attend, or already committed, we thank you. Please know that your contributions matter so much to our organization. When we hold our next event, your support will be counted on.
Ticket holders and sponsors will be issued a full refund for the amount paid. We hope that you will join us again at the Taylor House Museum in the spring.
Despite the regret we have regarding the postponement of our gala, we would like you to know that we have major announcements coming in the near future. Habitat for Humanity of Worcester County is a committed community partner. We are very excited for 2018, and hope that you will join us by any means possible.
We appreciate each and every one of you. Without your commitment and generous support, we would not be able to fulfill our mission of building homes, communities and hope.
