The 26th Ernestine Affair
IMPORTANT EVENT UPDATE
Firstly, the team at Ernestine’s Women’s Shelter would like to thank every one of our community partners who have been standing by our sides during this challenging time. Our hearts couldn’t be more full thanks to the outpouring of support from our incredible supporters, sponsors, and donors!
Every year, we at Ernestine’s look forward to connecting with our community and celebrating all we have achieved together for women and children fleeing violence and abuse. However, following the overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Ernestine Affair on October 30th.
It is with deepest regret that we make this announcement and this is not a decision we have taken lightly, but with due regard to the pandemic, we need to prioritize the health and safety of our friends, supporters, and everyone who helps put the Ernestine Affair on, including our corporate volunteers and shelter staff!
We will continue to share updates and news about Ernestine’s, such as a video tour of the shelter with me, on our social media platforms (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) so please make sure to follow us!
If you’d like, you can donate your ticket or table purchase – with a 100% charitable donation tax receipt – so that we can continue making a difference and help women and children fleeing abuse during the coronavirus crisis. Please know that, alternatively, we will also issue a full refund.
In the meantime, please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding during these difficult times. If you have any questions or would like a refund, please email Angela Mazza at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you once again to our community supporters for all you have done and please stay safe! We at Ernestine’s are looking forward to hosting you, once this global health pandemic passes.
