Governors Ball Update
Ball Postponed; Raffle Suspended

As most of you know by now, we have at least postponed the Governors Ball given the Coronavirus pandemic. There will be no Mardi Gras celebration this Saturday night at the Dunwoody Country Club. We hope to do something later in the year and will keep you up to date.

Admission Fees for the Ball: We will be returning all guest fees for attending the ball; some of those refunds are already in process and we are working on the rest. For now, since we may have an event later in the year, we will be holding on to the $250 per couple that each Rotarian paid through dues. We will keep you informed about that money as we move forward.

Raffle Suspended: We are suspending the Harry Styles concert ticket raffle and will return the money to those who purchased tickets. Given all that has happened with regard to the coronavirus pandemic and social distancing, we believe this is the right action to take because of uncertainty about how long the pandemic will affect social gatherings and whether the concert will take place as planned. As a result, there will be no drawing this Saturday, March 28.

  • If you purchased tickets online, we will be refunding your money for tickets purchased some time in the next month or so.
  • If you signed a list that circulated at our meeting a few Fridays ago saying you would buy tickets, note that those purchases have not yet been processed on your behalf. You haven’t been charged for these tickets and won’t be receiving a refund.

We will continue to monitor the pandemic and possibilities this concert will take place – afnd may in fact restart the raffle at a later date. If we do, you know I will let you know.

Auction Items: Many of you have donated or procured items for the live and silent auctions. At the moment, we are evaluating the possibility of an online auction and will keep you posted.

Thank you for your support and understanding on this. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me.
