COVID-19 Preventative Measures
As we prepare to gather for a sold-out celebration on the lawn at Tall Timbers, we want to take a moment to share the COVID-19 preventative measures Tall Timbers is taking to host a safe event and the measures we are asking of our guests. If you sponsored a table, please share this message with those you are inviting to join you.

Thank you for working together with us to support a safe return to the in-person socializing and friendship that we all love about the Kate Ireland Auction.
Our Part
Tall Timbers has moved the auction outdoors on the lawn with a large open tent. Risk of transmission is dramatically reduced outdoors and we are thankful to have an audience that loves being outside. We will also be implementing the following preventative measures to further reduce transmission risk.

  • Ample air circulation throughout the tent
  • Comfortable spacing for all seating arrangements
  • Individual complimentary hand sanitizers
  • Hand sanitizing stations throughout the silent auction
  • Complimentary face coverings available
  • Masks required for all service staff
  • Vaccination required for all Tall Timbers staff at the event
Your Part
Before the event. If you feel sick or have any symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home. You can still be involved through live auction proxy bidding and on-line silent auction bids. Contact our Development Office below for help.  

During the event. Please practice hand hygiene along with physical distance consistent with your vaccination choice. We have moved the event to a tent outside, modified the schedule, and are providing options that allow you to spread out and avoid congested areas. 

After the event. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, please get tested and let us know if you receive a positive test result. Tall Timbers is striving to provide a COVID transmission free event for our guests and staff. It is important for us to understand if any transmission may have occurred at the event so we can take appropriate actions.
Please contact the Development Office if you have any questions.
