Celebrate the Best
of the Lakes Region
See you in November 2021!
Premier Charity Tasting Event
October 16, 2020
It was with an abundance of optimism that, in light of the pandemic, Lakes Region Community Services Foundation endeavored to re-imagine our signature annual fundraiser, Lakes Region Uncorked, and it is with an abundance of caution that we now regret to announce that we will not be holding the event this year, not even virtually. We are saddened to feel compelled to cancel Lakes Region Uncorked 2020, but recent trends statewide and locally are sufficiently concerning to make clear that this is now the responsible choice. The safety and well-being of the people we serve and care for, of our staff and partners, and of our overall community are paramount.
When it was clear six months ago that our traditional wine tasting event would not be possible in the fall, a virtual wine tasting, with a “party-in-a-box” format was developed, and we have excitedly been preparing to bring a little Uncorked into Lakes Region homes and businesses in November. However, having watched the number of COVID-19 cases rise across the country, in New Hampshire, and in the Lakes Region, impacting the workforce, schools, and all aspects of our daily lives, we feel the only prudent decision can be to cancel at this time, and not encourage even small gatherings. If nationally we are being asked to reconsider Thanksgiving plans and other cherished holiday gathering traditions, wine tasting parties feel like an unnecessary and imprudent risk at this time.
We are, as always, incredibly grateful to our sponsors, guests, and the vendors who make our annual event so successful. We will be planning Uncorked 2021, and hoping, along with the rest of the country, that next fall we will come together for in person events, and raise a glass to good health!
Thank you for your understanding, and for supporting Lakes Region Community Services throughout the year!
