It is with the greatest sadness that due to unforeseen circumstances we have to cancel this year’s Equinox “The Formal All-Inclusive” event. All who had made advance purchases for the event will receive a full refund.
This cancellation without a doubt is a sad moment within our team and we hope to reseed this dream another time so that it may blossom properly. As we deal with this disappointment, we are reminded that there are many paths to the same objective! As such we are continuing to support our communities’ children with emotional disabilities, as well as those with social emotional and learning challenges. How?
