EVENT POSTPONED TO OCTOBER 9-10!!!
Due to the spread of COVID-19, the CDC has asked that we hold no events with 50 or more people for the next 8 weeks. Because of this, and with the significant number of people from outside Amarillo who are attending – as well as competing – we feel it’s wise and appropriate to listen to the authorities and postpone the event.
We have set a new date to hold Feed, Clothe, Love and Lift on October 9-10. Rich Froning has already committed to coming. Tia Toomey is making every effort to make that date work as well, as she’s had several spring commitments rescheduled for the fall. If she can’t make it, Rich will find us another big name to come with him.
Believe me, this is the last thing we want to do, as this is our biggest fundraiser of the year. It has been an extremely difficult decision to make, but we’re not left with much choice. Our core value as an organization is to love our neighbors, no matter where they are, and doing our part to keep our city safe and healthy is one way we can do that. Thankfully this is not a cancellation, but just a postponement. We’re going to make sure that October’s event is bigger and better than any we’ve had before – this is the first weekend of the next Open, so you know we”ll have something special planned!
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We’re so sorry we have had to make this decision. If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to ask. Please pray for Mission 2540 as we go navigate the uncertainty and increase in physical and spiritual needs of the families we work with in the coming days.
