ChildServe has been closely monitoring recommendations from public health officials regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We continue to keep the health and safety of our children, families, and constituents as our upmost priority. In compliance with social distancing guidance shared by the Governor, we have decided to cancel the Bubble Ball in 2020.
We love this event, and our internal team considered all options in an effort to reschedule for a later date. Unfortunately, due to the complexity of scheduling an event of this magnitude, combined with the uncertainty of the pandemic, we were unable to do so.
We truly value your support for ChildServe and the Bubble Ball. This signature gala has grown to become a local favorite and we look forward to continuing this wonderful celebration next year. Funds raised from this event support ChildServe’s signature programs for children with special healthcare needs. Specifically, this year’s funds will help our Respite Program. This program provides safe, loving care for children with special healthcare needs when their families need a break. Despite cancellation of the event, sponsorships will still be used to support this special program. Should you wish to visit more about these developments, please feel free to contact Erica Axiotis, Director of Development, at E.Axiotis@childserve.org.
