Springfield’s Ritz gala postponed over coronavirus
SPRINGFIELD — Springfield CORAL announced Monday morning they were postponing their annual Ritz gala over COVID-19 and coronavirus concerns.
From the Facebook announcement:
Following pronouncements from the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control, The Ritz 2020 will be postponed until such events are deemed safe to resume. The Coalition of Rainbow Alliances is working to minimize the effects of this important change, and will be making further announcements regarding Sponsorships, Advertising, Tables and Ticketing, in days to come. We appreciate your continuing support of The Ritz and remind you to participate in the Primary Election this week, and watch for your opportunity to be counted in The 2020 Census. We look forward to greeting, and celebrating with you, later this year. Questions can be directed to me personally, or to other committee members.
A new date will be announced when available.
If your event or organization is closing because of the coronavirus, email [email protected] and we’ll get the information out.
