San Francisco NCBW's Golden Girls Hats & Gloves Tea Postponed Due to Mayor London Breed's Directive
Mayor London Breed gave a new directive reaching the leadership of San Francisco National Coalition of 100 Black Women between 5:30 and 6:00 p.m. as they were setting up Friday. The Mayor is limiting public gatherings to 100 people.
"We were setting up for the event that has been held at the Fairmont since 2005 when hotel officials informed us that the Mayor's Office had changed the parameters around public gatherings and we could no longer host the event, said Dr. Maxine Hickman, President of San Francisco NCBW and National Board Member of NCBW"
Earlier in the week, SF NCBW sent out a notice confirming the annual fundraiser would go on as scheduled and shared that it had sought out the Fairmont Hotel leadership for confirmation of its procedures to follow all health guidelines in accordance with the CDC.
This week the changing limit of public gatherings went from 1000 to 250 and is now 100 people as of the afternoon of March 13, 2020. "Given the gravity of concerns and with a great deal of caution in mind we are taking quick action to be in alignment with the Mayor's new directive, said Dr. Hickman. "We are in the process of letting our members and guests know that our March 14, 2020 fundraiser has been postponed, said Dr. Hickman."
