2020 Reaching New Heights Women's Luncheon
The 2020 Reaching New Heights LuncheonDear Supporters of Cumberland Heights: As you have likely anticipated, Cumberland Heights is cancelling our upcoming “Reaching New Heights” luncheon due to the coronavirus and the health measures being recommended by city, state and national officials to help “flatten the curve” and slow the spread of this virus. We know you were looking forward to this important fundraising luncheon – we all were. However, we are confident you understand the situation in which we find ourselves today. We thank you for supporting this annual fundraiser with your ticket purchase and/or sponsorship. It’s because of support like yours that Cumberland Heights is able to continue providing treatment for people seeking recovery from alcoholism and drug dependency. This fundraiser, as you know, specifically supports our women’s programs. Hundreds of women and their families have received hope and healing throughout the years because of your generosity. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Rachel Williams, our Development Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone at 615-432-3228.
