Why was The Seeds of Hope postponed instead of cancelled?

We always look forward to — and fiscally depend on — this event each year, and the timing of it is always crucial. This year is marks the 10th annual Seeds of Hope Gala, and our guest of honor is particularly deserving of the award. We chose to postpone instead of cancel the event so we can still celebrate Tom Fromme’s contributions to the community, and raise important money that will allow us to continue to fulfill our mission of empowering disadvantaged youth and their families.

Will I get a refund for my tickets?

Your ticket will automatically transfer to the new event date (05/15/2020). If you are unable to attend the event on the rescheduled date, it is possible to refund the value of your ticket. However, because this event is an important fundraiser for Mentoring Plus we humbly ask that you consider the price of your tickets a donation to support our schools and students or gifting them to someone else who is able to attend.

Will the event be the same as originally planned?

Yes! The Seeds will still be held at Newport Syndicate with the same games, food, and entertainment that you’ve come to expect from this annual event. With the added time to plan, we are looking in to adding
even more fun to the party!

Why did you choose May 15, 2020 as the new date?

May 15th is our tentative date, and we are very hopeful to bring you a fun and engaging evening on that date. Based on current reports, we expect that the large-scale restrictions will be lifted by that time. The challenge for us was to find a date that was far enough away that the major health concerns will have subsided, but not so far away as to financially strain the organization. We will continue to monitor the situation, and make adjustments as necessary.

If I am a sponsor, what will happen?

All Seeds of Hope sponsorships will carry over to the new event on 05/15/2020. This change in
date allows us to increase the preparation and promotion of your sponsorship.

I bought a grand raffle ticket, what will happen with that drawing?

Your raffle ticket purchase will transfer to the new event date. Drawing will take place at the same time and location (9 p.m. at Newport Syndicate), but has been delayed to the new event date of May 15th, 2020.

Will other Mentoring Plus events be cancelled or postponed?

At this time we have no plans to cancel or postpone additional FTEF events. We will continue to monitor
the situation and consider all the important information and communicate accordingly.

Upcoming events:
September 25, 2020 – Judge Mickey Foellger Mentoring Plus Annual Golf Outing
November 7, 2020 – 2nd Annual M+ Music Festival
