After much discussion internally and with Stacy Long at the VAC we have concluded that it will not be possible to reschedule the 2020 Sequoyah Ball for any sooner than spring of 2021. We will be revisiting this plan at our club meeting on January 14th 2021 to determine how to proceed. Regardless of the date chosen, all tickets previously purchased will be honored and we are holding all donated silent and live auction items until the new date. We will be selling the remaining 75 tickets once a new date has been set and the Voluntary Action Center will at that point be the recipient of all proceeds raised. Unfortunately, we do not have the manpower to host more than one Sequoyah Ball per year so this means we will not be taking applications for ball partners until we start planning for SB2022.
Thank you all for the great community support and understanding.
CWC President 2020-2022
The health and wellbeing of our friends and community members being of the utmost importance, the Calhoun Woman’s Club is rescheduling the Sequoyah Ball to a later date when the coronavirus is no longer a possible threat locally and our country is no longer under a national state of emergency.
We are extraordinarily grateful for all of our sponsors and for those who have already purchased tickets for the ball. The venue management at 209 on Wall Street, Joe Sowell with Elegant Catering and Harlan Rice with the Dexter Thomas Band are absolutely amazing and are holding our contracts and honoring them in full for our new event date, when decided. The tickets already purchased will remain valid, and we will open ticket sales again when the new event date has been set.
We are grateful also for the many silent and live auction items that have been donated. The businesses and individuals in our community are unrivaled in their supportiveness. Please consider how you can help the VAC in the short term, as both of the major fundraising events planned to assist with their renovations and expanded meal program have been postponed, and there are many people in our community who will still need food in the interim. The silent and live auction items we have received already will be held safely and will be awaiting your bids on the evening of the rescheduled ball. We will announce the new date when we can celebrate with you the passing of this pandemic.
Life may slow down the next few weeks. Hope you all have a good book or movie and can enjoy time with your families. Stay safe.
Thank you so much for your understanding and support.
