A Blue Carpet Affair

Cancellation Update

Dear Friends, 

First, I’d like to express our gratitude for your support by purchasing your ticket(s), partnering with us for sponsorship, or making a donation for Footprints Center for Autism’s 3rd annual fundraising dinner and fashion show, A Blue Carpet Affair. We could not live out our mission of providing comprehensive, collaborative, and child-centered programming for children with autism and other disabilities without the gracious support of people like you.

As I’m sure you’re well-aware, the global climate surrounding the rapid spread of the coronavirus has led to many changes that impact our daily lives, both individually and as an organization. Since the beginning of the pandemic here in the United States, our Board of Directors and leadership team have been closely monitoring the situation in order to make the best decisions for our staff, students, donors, event attendees, volunteers, and sponsors.  

We notified you in March of the initial postponement of our annual event, A Blue Carpet Affair. We had originally postponed the event from March 28th, 2020, to July 18th, 2020, due to the large nature of our event. 

However, due to the high level of uncertainty that the coming months will hold, our leadership team and Board of Directors have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event.  

Anyone who purchased a ticket or a sponsorship has the opportunity to request a refund or request that their purchase be considered a donation. Those preferences can be indicated by filling out this brief form. 

We do hope that you will consider joining us for our 2021 event, which will be on Saturday, April 24, 2021. Though disappointed by this cancellation, we are happy that we were able to do our part to keep everyone safe and healthy and are looking forward to an excellent event in 2021. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time on my cell phone at 440-622-0218 or by email at ebolyard@footprints-ohio.com

Thank you so much for your understanding. Stay safe and healthy, and have a great day!
