Update Re: Coronavirus

Dear Friends of Girls Rock Columbia,

It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of postponing our biggest fundraiser of the year, Rock Roulette. In accordance with the CDC’s latest recommendations for organizations and events, we are pressing pause on all of our events through the next eight weeks. Every major annual fundraising effort we have will be directly impacted by these postponements— Rock Roulette at New Brookland Tavern, our first-of-its-kind Rummage and Gear sale at Curiosity Coffee Bar, as well as our Midlands Gives events. 

The safety of our staff, volunteers, and community is our top priority, and we stand in solidarity with all of our fellow nonprofits and businesses who are making these difficult decisions to close in an effort to help stop the spread of COVID-19. We hope everyone who is able to will stay home and practice as much self-care as possible. 

This decision has been simultaneously a no-brainer and very difficult to make. As a nonprofit, we rely on donations to keep campers rocking. We will continue to monitor this situation closely and be flexible moving forward. In the meantime, if you are able, we are asking our supporters to consider giving a monthly sustaining gift or a gift of any amount through our website or via PayPal

Thank you for continuing to care and support one another as many of us make difficult decisions during this time.

With love, glitter, and solidarity,

Girls Rock Columbia
