Easterseals Central Illinois continues to monitor the developing COVID-19 pandemic and take proactive measures to protect patients, families and staff. We have consulted with state and local officials, in addition to monitoring the CDC website for guidance.
In accordance with the CDC guidelines, Easterseals Central Illinois is postponing three fundraising events that were scheduled for April 2020. These include the Easterseals Ladies Auxiliary Fashion Show (April 7th), Run Walk Roll (April 18th) and Passage to India (April 24th). Discussions with these event committees are underway regarding rescheduled dates for Passage to India and Run Walk Roll. The Easterseals Ladies Auxiliary Fashion Show has been rescheduled to September 1st 2020. Anyone who has purchased tickets these events can expect communication soon regarding rescheduling.
It is our mission to help children in Central Illinois with developmental delays, disabilities and other special needs to meet their full potential. These three events provide vital funds to support that mission. However, we take the health and safety of our staff, clients, supporters and community seriously. We agree with state and local officials that this is the best course of action at this time. We would like to extend our appreciation to the volunteers who have already committed time and resources to developing these events.
