Dear WCE Community,
We write you with disappointing news. The Woman’s Club of Evanston Holiday Bazaar Committee has worked hard since March to figure out how to proceed with this year’s event safely. We were unable to balance all the competing needs that the COVID19 pandemic placed upon events and organizations. After weighing all the options, our committee and the Board have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 WCE Holiday Bazaar for the safety of our vendors, volunteers, and community.
This premier event is one that our members look forward to each fall, and we hope to come back strong to hold this wonderful event in November 2021. We are extremely thankful to all of our vendors, members, volunteers and community members who have supported this event year after year.
As you may know, proceeds from the WCE Holiday Bazaar fund our Community Grants Fund allowing us to give grants to the community. We know that the absence of this event will have an impact on our Community Grants Fund for the 2021-2022 Club Year. Please continue to give your support to the innovative and exciting events our Philanthropy Generalist Committee will host this club year that will continue to help raise money for our Community Grants Fund.
Our sincerest thanks for your understanding and continued support.
2020 WCE Holiday Bazaar Chair
