Letter sent 3/12/2020 to Breakfast Ticket Holders:
Regrettably, after monitoring the COVID-19/Coronavirus outbreak and much careful consideration, we must announce that next Thursday’s Fair Housing Breakfast has been canceled.
As you likely know, Governor Whitmer just issued a state of emergency, and public health officials are recommending that large events like ours be canceled.
This being the most critical yearly fundraiser for our small nonprofit, I am sure you can understand what a heavy decision this was. However, attendees are our first and foremost concern and we do not want to contribute to additional risk of exposure to the virus or place anyone in a potentially harmful situation.
We have arranged with our guest speaker Lisa Rice to still present her talk remotely. We’re still working out the details, but the talk will be made available to you either via live webinar or a recording posted on our website.
For those of you eligible for CE credit, the webinar will still be approved for one credit hour. We will follow up with further instruction on how to receive appropriate credit.
We hope you will consider converting your breakfast ticket payment into a membership (if not already a member) or additional donation to support the Fair Housing Center; if this is your wish, there is no need to respond. If you need to be issued a refund, please reply to this email no later than March 26th.
We are still extremely grateful for our sponsors (see below). Visit this link to view the event program.
Please leave a message at 877-979-3247 with any questions or concerns. We will do our best to return messages within one business day. Thank you for your understanding in the interest of public health.
