CANCELLED! FUTURES Caribbean Party presented by Brown & Brown Insurance
After careful consideration for the safety and well-being of our supporters & community and given the unknowns with COVID-19 virus, FUTURES Foundation Executive Committee and event chairman have made the difficult to cancel our 2020 Caribbean Party, presented by Brown & Brown Insurance, on March 28th, honoring Bob & Sherri Lloyd.
We know this news may be disappointing and may even cause an inconvenience to you, but we hope you understand our concern is for the health and safety of you, your fellow attendees, our vendors and staff. The event was scheduled to host more than 380 people.
We greatly appreciate everyone’s amazing support for this annual event, our only major fundraiser. On a positive note as so many of you enjoy our annual auction, FUTURES will be conducting the event’s silent auction via our Click Bid on-line bidding platform which has been used for the past two years. We look forward to your additional support through this auction process. We hope you will register to bid & view items at www.Futures.cbo.io. The auctions will close at 9 p.m. Sunday, April 5th.
If you would still like to support FUTURES Foundation for Volusia County Schools, your Caribbean Party sponsorship or ticket purchase amount may be donated in full to support our mission of investing in the future of Volusia County Public School students.
If you would like a refund for your ticket or sponsorship amount, you may request the refund by emailing FUTURESFoundation@Volusia.k12.fl.us or calling us at 386.255.6475, ext. 50730. We kindly request your refund request by 5 p.m. Monday, March 30, so we may promptly process your refund. If you would like for us to keep your sponsorship or ticket purchase(s) as a donation, no action is needed. Please let us know if you would like to receive an updated tax receipt letter without the fair market value of the ticket listed.
We deeply regret the need to cancel this year’s event but believe this was our best and safest course of action for the well-being of our supporters and community at large. We want to thank our Caribbean Party Committee, FUTURES Board Members, and all who have volunteered in various capacities in preparing for the event as well as our vendors who are working closely with us in this cancellation decision. Our sincere appreciation goes out to each of you.
We look forward to your bids on the amazing auction items and your support for our 2021 Caribbean Party next spring. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Executive Director Cynthia Ramirez at FUTURESFoundation@Volusia.k12.fl.us or 386.255.6475, ext. 50730.
