The Annual TLCF Fundraiser has been rescheduled to September 13, 2020. However, we will continue to monitor this ever-evolving situation. We feel it is imperative to safeguard the health and well-being of our supporters and volunteers and to follow the mandates of our state, local, and federal government officials. To that end, the event will be different from years' past. We will be innovative in our approach to executing the event, will adopt a flexible refund policy, and will be following safety recommendations and guidelines set forth by our federal, state, and local officials.
