It is with heavy hearts during this frightening time that we must inform everyone that our upcoming outing at Topgolf is postponed indefinitely.
We have not come to this decision lightly, but rather by examining the ever-changing factors in the mix and others beyond our control.
The first hurdle we faced was that the original date of May 3, 2020 falls within the guidelines of limited social interaction for 60 days of groups of 10 or more. We are not endeavoring to hold an event in defiance of government orders.
Second, with the uncertainty of many people’s jobs, schools and livelihoods, asking for donations from either persons or businesses is not in anyone’s best interest at this crucial time. We are a charity that is dependent on personal donations and donations from smaller groups. These are the very groups that are experiencing extreme financial uncertainty. We cannot in good conscience add to their potential growing burden.
We are also incredibly dependent on the generosity of the myriad small businesses in the Crystal Lake area that provide us each year with items for our auctions and raffles. As they too face uncertainty and are being tasked with potentially unthinkable decisions in the coming days, weeks and months, we also cannot knowingly add to their grief with our hands out.
This is an incredibly difficult decision that we must make, but do not let this deter you from being a “little helper” in your communities.
Do your part. Follow the guideline and advice from medical professionals.
Blood banks are experiencing critically low supplies. Neighbors are in desperate need of items that you may have in abundance. Hearts are in need of knowing we will all be okay.
We encourage you to continue staying up to date with us through social media and our website, masonwasz.org for details on a reschedule date as well as upcoming events that may be rescheduled or cancelled based on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Thank you for being part of #TeamMason.
Be safe. Be well.
