Dear VMS Community,
As you know from previous communications, we have been closely monitoring the public health recommendations surrounding the outbreak and spread of the Coronavirus. Out of an abundance of concern for our community's health and well being and in response to Governor Newsom's recent recommendation to cancel gatherings of 250 or more, we have made the decision to cancel the March 21st Gala at Garré Winery.
More details to follow as we work on our contingency plan to auction many of the items that were meant to be sold at the event in an online format. No changes will be made to the Online Auction that opened last night or the Raffles and Class SignUps.
We will offer to refund ticket purchases upon request; all remaining ticket sale funds will be treated as a "Friend of the Gala Donation" which is tax deductible. If you have any questions regarding these changes, feel free to contact me or Elizabeth Brice at
We appreciate our supportive community and your understanding as we navigate this rapidly evolving situation. The health and safety of our community is always our top priority.
