LiFT Your
Spirits Gala

LiFT Academy LiFT-Gala
Dear Friends

As a worldwide community, it goes without saying that each of us are personally and immediately affected by COVID19; LiFT shares this vulnerability.

In the interest of our greater well being and in keeping with the spirit of our Derby roots, LiFT has made the decision to postpone our annual fundraising gala, LiFT Your Spirits, to September 5th 2020, which coincides with the new date announced by Churchill Downs for the 146th Kentucky Derby. More event communications will be forthcoming.

I DO believe through challenge and adversity we find unity and strength. COVID19 has impacted our common humanity but it also reminds us we are a global society, caring for one another. Our lives are intrinsically connected across countries, continents and diversities. During this time of social distancing and temporary isolation, let us remember how precious we are to one another.

Wishing each of you protection and peace,

Keli Mondello
