Hops for HEARTH Cancelled

    

HEARTH will be cancelling our Hops for HEARTH event being held next Friday, March 20, 2020 and it will not be rescheduled. This was a difficult decision for us, but our community’s safety is our number one priority.  We came to this decision after numerous discussions with staff, supporters, and community members. Governor Wolf and the PA department of Health have recommended suspension of all social gatherings over 250 people. Hops for HEARTH has many more than that in attendance and, out of an abundance of caution for everyone in attendance, we feel that this was the right call to make.

Silent Auction Items – HEARTH will still host our silent auction; however, it will be displayed virtually! You can still browse all of our items that would have been at Hops for HEARTH and bid via BidPal. The auction will open on Thursday, March 19, 2020 at noon and will run until Monday, March 23, 2020 at noon.

You can bid at this link – https://one.bidpal.net/hopsforhearth2020/browse/all(details:item/1)
Any questions about bidding can be directed to Morgan Ceschini at mlceschini@hearth-bp.org
We will notify you if you win a silent auction package. We will notify you when you can come to HEARTH to pick-up your items, this date will be determined as COVID-19 information is updated. If there are time sensitive materials such as tickets in your package, those will be mailed to you right away.

For ticket refunds – HEARTH will issue full refunds within the next 7 days (thru Friday, 3/20/20 at midnight). You must contact Morgan at mlceschini@hearth-bp.org  to receive your refund. We have had several attendees donate their ticket purchase to the organization and we are very grateful for their support! Just a reminder, the Hops for HEARTH provides around $34,000 annually to the HEARTH budget. Please consider making your ticket purchase a donation to HEARTH. We will have a significant financial hole to fill in the wake of this crisis and cancellation.

Thank you! We would like to thank all of our sponsors, vendors, and attendees for being incredibly understanding during this period. It is at times like these that we are very grateful to have such a caring and supportive community surrounding HEARTH! We will continue to update you with more information as we receive it.
