CANCELLATION OF LPIE POWER PARTY
Dear LPIE Community,
It is with great sadness that we are canceling the upcoming Rock the Yacht Power Party scheduled for next weekend, March 21st, 2020. Our venue, UC Berkeley, announced the cancellation of on-campus events. This coupled with the Health Services directive regarding canceling large gatherings, made it clear that this is the only path forward.
The financial impact of this decision is huge. This event is budgeted to raise $350,000, money that has already been committed to our schools and students for this year. We need your help more than ever.
We respect the anxiety our community may be currently feeling with coronavirus and the news. It is our hope that by ensuring our schools are equipped with the funds they need to maintain quality programs and resources they were expecting for this year, that it can serve as a way for all of us to focus on things that we can control and keep anxiety to a minimum for our kids. We are very transparent with how funding is being used and welcome any questions (email email@example.com) on funding impacts with changes to schedules or programs caused by these unforeseen events.
Again, we are heartbroken to cancel this event. We are so grateful for our event sponsors, including Diamond Title Sponsor Martin Homes, and for our incredible event chairs Jen Bielawski and Amy Jones. More than ever, we are grateful to live in such a supportive community and hope you’ll help LPIE sail to success despite the rough waters!
