In light of recent recommendations from public health officials around COVID-19, we have decided to cancel the April 4, 2020 GALA at the Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis.
Wyman has a commitment to ensuring our work is evidence-based and rooted in best-practices and we applied this approach to this situation. We leaned into what experts tell us about how we all can be a part of the solution to slow or stop this pandemic. The safety and well-being of our guests, the teens, and the staff is important to us and we could not in good conscience ask you to take action that would contradict the recommendations of these experts.
Although the in-person event is cancelled, the needs of the young people we serve remain urgent.
During the week of March 30th, we will be offering you a virtual experience that will provide opportunities to hear from our young people. We are eager for you to continue to support them in their journey. Follow us on social media and check your inbox often, and consider making a donation below.
Thank you in advance for helping us to make the best of Gala 2020. #WymanWill persevere on behalf of the young people we serve.
