Over the past several months, we have all been following updates around COVID-19 and have undoubtedly felt its impact on our daily lives. During this unprecedented time, many of us have had to make decisions that we never saw coming as the safety and well-being of our community is top priority.
At the beginning of 2021 with cases declining and vaccinations increasing the board felt that it was safe to start planning our Signature Event for June 24, 2021 but limit the invite list to only sponsors and proceed with the event outdoors at Orchard Lake Country Club. However, as we get closer to summer, and with numbers still high, the OCBF board realizes that even if we are able to have an event it would not look like the Signature Event we enjoy because of current COVID restrictions. Therefore, the board has decided to push back our sponsor-only event to September 14, 2021. This event will still be only open to select group of people and following COVID protocols outdoors at Orchard Lake but we are hopeful that by the fall we will be able to have an event that more closely resembles the Signature Event we all enjoy so much.
The OCBF board will be recruiting sponsors for this event because we are still supporting worthy nonprofits throughout the county in this time of need. If you are interested in supporting this event through a donation or sponsorship, contact Katie Tillinger by email or at 248-334-3400.
We can’t thank you enough for your support of the Oakland County Bar Foundation and its mission. We wish you, your families and colleagues all the best in the coming months.
We hope we will be able to celebrate with many of you on September 14, 2021.
