At Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island, the health and safety of our community, including our wish families, corporate partners and donors, volunteers, and employees, is always our priority.
Due to current medical and public concerns regarding the coronavirus, all wish travel has been postponed until further notice, as well as wish child participation in all activities and events that involve large gatherings. We have also postponed our 2020 Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island Gala scheduled for Saturday, April 4 at the InterContinental Boston, and Swish Night scheduled for Saturday, March 28 at Longmeadow Country Club.
We continue to monitor guidance from national and international public health and government organizations and are working closely with the national Make-A-Wish Medical Advisory Council, keeping the best interest of the children and families and the communities we serve at the center of all decisions we make. We are committed to reviewing policy routinely to ensure we are operating in a safe and timely fashion.
We will share details and updates regarding plans going forward as information becomes available. As always, we are truly grateful to you for your support of our mission.
