Annual Last Chance for White Pants Gala Cancelled
While Lower Cape Fear LifeCare would like nothing better than host its largest fundraiser and end-of-summer celebration the last weekend in August, Last Chance for White Pants Gala, the nonprofit hospice and palliative care provider decided not to host the gala in 2021.
Planning and solicitation of sponsors normally begins more than six months prior to the gala date. At that time this year, gathering and social distancing restrictions would not allow for an event such as the gala that normally hosts close to 600 guests.
As a healthcare provider, LCFL thought it was wise to take a “wait and see” approach to ensure the safety of all guests. With the current escalation of cases in our area due to the Delta variant, we are now positive this was the right call to make.
Lower Cape Fear LifeCare is looking forward to once again hosting the event in 2022 when there is proper time to plan. Hopefully, a larger portion of our local population will be vaccinated and the coronavirus will no longer be a concern.
We appreciate all the support we have received in past years from sponsors and guests. If you would like to continue to support our mission to ensure no one is ever denied the care they need at a time when they need it most, you can make a donation here.
