For the attention of all MonSTaR Supporters who were planning on attending the 2020 MonSTaR Cup and/or Ball on Friday 27th March – as at 16/3/20
We are extremely sorry to advise that we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 MonSTaR Cup and Ball on Friday 27th March. This includes both the golf day and the evening function. This follows the official Government directive banning events of over 500 people due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) and further developments over the weekend regarding smaller events/groups.
After considering all the factors and wanting to ensure that everyone remains safe, we felt cancellation was the only reasonable option.
As you can imagine, we are shattered that we can’t hold the event this year – the first time in 14 years – and we are extremely grateful to everyone who has so generously supported this year.
ONLINE SILENT AUCTION WILL STILL HAPPEN!
In the meantime, we still plan to run the online auction and we would LOVE your support to ensure we can still raise funds for our beneficiaries for whom this money is critical. We will post the link once the auction goes live – hopefully before Friday 20th March. The auction will still close on the evening of Friday 27th March. Once it goes live – bidding at any time is welcome and strongly encouraged!
Everyone who had already bought tickets should have received an email regarding the next steps. If you have not received it, please contact Sarah on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0432 719210.
It is an unprecedented situation for all of us and we sincerely hope you and your loved ones remain safe and healthy.
Again, thank you for your continued support.
Sarah, Mark, Greg, Hamish & of course, Peter Overton
