Gala Cancelled – Auction Moving Online
March 12, 2020
Generations of Care Gala: Paint the Town
Auction will be online!
After conferring with local health professionals and our Board of Trustees we have made the very difficult decision to cancel our in-person Generations of Care Gala scheduled for April 18th. This decision was announced to the Board on March 10.
Our paramount concern is the safety of all involved with the event—attendees, Martha & Mary staff, residents, casino staff, and others. While many would persevere despite concerns about the spread of the Coronavirus, if any individual was infected as a result of our evening activities, we would be heartbroken. We must put everyone’s safety above all else.
Due to the complexity of the evening, an in-person gala will not be rescheduled in 2020. For this year, we will move our auction online. In the coming days, we will send out announcements with a link to the online auction and we hope that you will share broadly with your friends and encourage them to shop the many fabulous items given by our generous community.
As you know, the Generations of Care Gala is our signature and single fundraising event of the year, accounting for 1/3 of our annual fundraising. The funds raised during this inspirational evening are used to support our core programs, and this year’s event was dedicated to raising funds needed to expand our memory care facility.
We know how much you care about our mission and the people we serve. Please encourage your friends and colleagues to make the gift they would have made during the Gala by donating at http://www.charityauction.bid/marthaandmary
