Frolic Cancellation Update
As you know, cancelling the 2020 Frolic with the Fairies wasn't an easy decision. As we've reviewed the costs associated with cancelling and the big financial support from Par-A-Dice Hotel, we stand with the community in taking precaution in hosting large events at this time
- An email is going out to ticket holders today with options to:
- Donate ticket costs to the Junior League of Peoria to help support our mission & strategy
- Request a full / partial refund
Governance Board Meeting Highlights
Finances. We spent a lot of time going over and discussing our finances. We worked towards a balanced budget. At this time, we are slightly behind and anticipate a deficit of roughly $17,000.
Why are we behind? Annual giving is down significantly vs. this time last year. Dues income also is down.
Meanwhile, our Treasurer and Treasurer-Elect are doing a stellar job of tracking our expenses and finding ways for us to be more financially prudent.
How can you help? Please pay your dues by March 31. Please consider making a contribution – in any amount – to the Annual Fund.
