Gala/Events/Programs Postponed in Response to COVID-19
At the Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin, the health and well-being of those we serve is of the utmost importance, guiding the choices we make as an organization each day. For that reason, we have been keeping a watchful eye on the developing situation pertaining to COVID-19 (Coronavirus). After careful consideration, for the safety and protection of our members, attendees, sponsors and staff, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all programming through the end of April 2020 and reschedule our annual Gala event to June 19, 2020.
We want to assure you that the decision was not made lightly. We live our mission through our events, and look forward to the Gala event all year, as a celebration with and for those we serve. Through your generosity, the Gala raises nearly one quarter of our annual budget. It has become clear, however, through the direction of the Governor, the Department of Health, and the World Health Organization that limiting gatherings is one of the best steps we can take toward containing the virus. As such, we felt compelled to make this decision.
We will continue to work together with the community to decrease the risk of transmission. We intend to return to normal programming in May when we can do so safely pending further announcements from health and government organizations. We hope you will join us at that time and will consider supporting us as we navigate this unprecedented landscape.
While we await a return to normalcy, online services via our Facebook Support Group pages will remain in place as we work to improve the lives of all those affected by autism.
We appreciate your patience and understanding. We will continue to be transparent throughout this process.
The evening includes cocktail hour, silent and live auction, raffles, dinner program, live band and more.
