The decision was based on the advice of medical professionals and our concern for the health and safety of attendees and event staff in an enclosed environment with the recent surge in COVID-19 cases in the vaccinated and non-vaccinated population. We are saddened to cancel after the hours devoted by the Planning Committee in organizing the first in-person event that we were all looking forward to attending after the difficulties of the past year and knowing how much the people of Haiti would benefit from this fundraising event. We hope to plan an event in late spring 2022.
For now, the Craft Festival & Marketplace is still being held in hopes that the numbers of COVID-19 decline by November.
Autumn’s Palette launched in 2016 as a Wine Tasting & Auction to an overwhelming show of support from MATH’s many friends, old and new. Behind the scenes, a creative committee worked tirelessly to roll out a festive event with proceeds benefitting MATH’s projects in Port-au-Prince and Dame-Marie, as well as providing relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew.
We are excited to bring back Autumn’s Palette in 2021 with the addition of a Farm-to-Table theme and a Beer Tasting to be held at The Town & County Club, 22 Woodland St, Hartford, CT. The proceeds will support maternal health care and surgical services in Dame-Marie and Port-au-Prince, as well as efforts to provide the resources to fight COVID-19.
Can you help by being a sponsor, contributing an item, e.g., long weekend getaway, golfing foursome, etc., for our live auction or gift card, basket, etc. for the silent auction, attend the event, or make a donation? Any individual or business that supports the event will be acknowledged at the event, on our website and social media platforms.
