To the GEF Family and Friends:

The GEF’s first and foremost concern is everyone’s safety and well-being during this time. As we are all doing our best to figure out how to navigate life, it will come as no surprise that we are changing the date of our 2020 Gala. The new date is Friday, November 6, 2020.

We are so very thankful to all our sponsors who remain committed to the work the GEF does and to the promise we have made to the children of Goochland County Public Schools to provide programs that help them grow with the skills and knowledge they need now and for the future.

This is a time in our history that reminds us of how much we are relying on those who have strong STEM skills. The scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians all over the world are working overtime to learn about COVID-19 and find a remedy as soon as possible.

We will be reaching out individually to all those who purchased tickets to see if you want a refund or hold your place for November 6th. Either way, we hope you will be able to join us!

In the meantime, I heard someone give great advice to a group of children this week that I think is great advice for all of us during this time:

If you’re sick, stay home
If your’e healthy, wash your hands
Do NOT be afraid!

And most of all, stay safe!
