Dear Five Acres Friends,
Five Acres is committed to the health and safety of our family, including the children in our care, our staff, volunteers, supporters and community. In light of the rapidly evolving COVID-19 updates by the World Health Organization, CDC and federal as well as local government, Five Acres has established a Pandemic Prevention Protocol to limit the transmission of COVID-19 and to protect the well-being of our community.
This past weekend, the CDC advised against gatherings of 50 or more people over the next eight weeks and today that guidance dropped to gatherings of 10 people or more. Based on these guidelines, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our Five Acres Sunsets in Santorini Gala, scheduled for Saturday, May 2 at the beautiful home of Diane and John Vidalakis. We look forward to rescheduling this special event to celebrate the work of child welfare advocates and supporters of Five Acres at a later date.
Please accept our deepest gratitude for your continued commitment to our mission of helping more children connect with permanent, loving families. Your support is needed now, more than ever, as we strive to protect the Five Acres children in our care and the dedicated staff who support our mission.
We are living in exceptional times and events are evolving rapidly. Over the coming weeks, we encourage you to balance the need to stay healthy and care for your family as we do the same for the community and children of Five Acres. Stay well and thank you for your support!
For any questions you may have regarding the gala, please contact the Advancement Office at 626.773.3776 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wishing you well and safe,
Mimi Carter & Don Boline
