Annual Compassion Fundraiser Postponed
From the very beginning of the pandemic, Emory Valley Center has been following CDC guidelines in an effort to do all we can to keep people safe. The continuing good health and safety of the people we support, employees, community partners, donors, speakers, vendors, and volunteers are our top priority.
With the recent increase of COVID cases in our area, and our commitment to continue following the latest recommendations from the CDC, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our fundraiser.
We’ve set a new date for Thursday, April 7th, 2022 and are hopeful conditions will allow us to celebrate in person by then.
Thank you for your sponsorships, donations and ticket purchases for this year’s fundraiser in support of our Community Supported Living Program. Proceeds we receive from your gifts this year will continue to support this program.
We appreciate your understanding and ongoing support and will continue to communicate updates regarding our fundraiser as they occur.
Please stay safe and healthy.
