We’ll miss you! Update on The Organic Center Benefit Dinner at Expo West
We are deeply disappointed to share that The Organic Center is unable to hold our fundraiser in Anaheim tomorrow, March 4, 2020, due to COVID 19 related cancellations from our sponsor companies, and the recent decision from our partners at New Hope to postpone Natural Products Expo West.
We followed the cascading cancellation announcements closely and watched the community dialog around health, safety, risk and revenue. We understand the incredibly difficult decisions that individuals and businesses had to make. At the end of the day, due to circumstances beyond our control, it is impossible to host our event tomorrow.
Unfortunately, changing course so close to the event means that we are still incurring significant costs associated with the event. As a small, mission-driven non-profit, we rely on this Benefit dinner to raise the funds that support our work all year long.
We are working creatively to reduce the overall loss for the organization and are grateful for your continued support of our work to accelerate the collective understanding of the benefits behind organic through (in)credible science, credibly sourced.
More than anything, we will truly miss gathering with you this week and engaging you in our mission. Thank you for your understanding and we hope to see you soon!
