Following the recommendations of the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) concerning public gatherings of 50 persons or more, the Weeks Bay Foundation has canceled the 11th Annual Bald Eagle Bash, currently scheduled for April 25.
The Bald Eagle Bash is the Foundation’s biggest fundraiser, and supports the work to protect land, water, and habitats in south Alabama. Although refunds are available, the Foundation is asking those who have already purchased tickets to the Bash to consider using the purchase as a donation to the Foundation, or holding on to their tickets for next year.
“During times such as this, donations naturally taper off and we all rightfully turn our attention to those in need,” Ellis Allen, M.D., chairman of the Foundation’s Board of Directors said. “As your local non-profit land trust, we rely on fundraising events, memberships, donations, and grants to sustain this important work throughout the year. While we are asking staff to review all expenses and operate on as lean a budget as possible, our mission of protecting your natural resources will not change.”
