Everything’s Coming Up Roses
Important Luncheon Update
On behalf of The Rose, our staff, our Board of Directors, and our 2020 Luncheon Committee, we send our very best wishes that you and yours are well and finding ways to manage during this incredibly difficult time.
As a healthcare organization, we have no choice but to cancel our Everything’s Coming Up Roses Luncheon, scheduled for June 3, 2020, at River Oaks Country Club. We could not in good conscience host a gathering in such perilous times. The risks are simply too high.
We know so many people are dealing with very real life and death concerns right now, and our hearts go out to all those families who are facing difficult decisions and unimaginable situations.
Please make sure the guests at your table are also aware of this change. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Until this time is behind us, we remain thankful for the blessing of your presence in our lives.
Dorothy Gibbons, CEO & Co-Founder of The Rose
