It is with regret that we inform you that the WTA has decided to postpone the 2020 fundraiser benefiting Autism Speaks which was set for March 26, 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak. Although so many worked tirelessly to arrange the event, and despite so many of you supporting this cause, the health and safety of our supporters and participants is our top priority.
As you may know, authorities have warned against hosting large gatherings, Universities have postponed classes and employers have begun to advise employees to remain at home. Consequently, the WTA believes we too must err on the side of caution and delay this event.
To that end, we intend to hold the event at a later date and ask for your permission to hold your contribution until that time. However, we will refund your contribution upon written request, which you can send to our email address at
Your request may take some time to process, so we ask for your patience. In the meantime, we thank you for your continued support and understanding during these difficult times.
We encourage everyone to become as informed as possible about the steps necessary to ensure that you and those around you stay safe.
Should you have additional questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.
