Taste of Mower County Auction

Dear Taste of Mower County supporter,
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has changed life as we know it, and you are probably trying to adjust as much as we are. For us, that meant to make a decision about this year's Taste of Mower County, scheduled for August 23, 2020. After much deliberation, we have decided to cancel this year's fundraiser.
It was not easy to make this call. After all, the Taste of Mower County is our biggest fundraiser, raising an average of $20,000 per year over the last several years. We discussed various models of how we could hold the event in person during the pandemic, but nothing made us comfortable. Your safety and that of our participants is too important to jeopardize, no matter how much it will affect our bottom line.
Nevertheless, we've come up with a new way to salvage some of the fun and fundraising power you've come to love about the Taste of Mower County. We plan to hold an online auction over several days, leading up to what would have been our big event at the Holiday Inn.

Again, we sincerely apologize for canceling this year's event. It makes an already challenging year for us even tougher, but we know we made the right decision. We appreciate any support you can give us and hope to be back next year.
