Due to Coronavirus,

the Whitman Foundation Spring Social

for Friday, March 13


To our generous supporters and scheduled attendees:  


We are cancelling the Whitman Foundation Spring Social for this Friday, March 13.


After careful deliberation with our WHSEF Board and consultation with Dr. Dodd, we believe it is the responsible course of action to cancel our WHSEF "Dedication to Education" Spring Social scheduled for tomorrow evening, March 13th.  Unfortunately, the WHSEF Spring Social is exactly the type of occasion that public health experts are discouraging right now in favor of ‘social distancing’, which may help to slow the rate of the coronavirus infection in our area. 


We are extremely disappointed to have to cancel the Spring Social.  We had a record number of registrations.  We were looking forward to celebrating with our community and to thanking all of you, our very generous donors.  Surely, we could all use a little celebration right now. 


We are extremely grateful to the management of Kenwood Country Club for their understanding of this unique situation and their flexibility to accommodate us. We'd also like to recognize our outstanding Host Committee of parent volunteers, who has spent the last few months working hard to spread the word about the Social and encourage attendance.


Given the uncertainty of this virus and its outcomes and the very full spring school calendar, we will not reschedule the Social this school year.

Since the event is cancelled and you will receive no goods or services for your donation, your entire donation may be eligible for a tax deduction. Please consult your tax advisor. If you have any questions about your donation, please contact Amy Moore ( or Laura Miller (


With much gratitude for your understanding and support,
