East River’s Mountain Oyster Fundraiser for Lifescape postponed

The East River Electric Employees Committee’s 56th Annual Mountain Oyster Fundraiser for LifeScape that was scheduled for Thursday, March 12th, at Nicky’s Restaurant in Madison has been postponed. This was a difficult decision to make but, with the recent news of confirmed cases of Coronavirus in parts of South Dakota and the World Health Organization officially declaring Coronavirus a pandemic, we feel it is a necessary and socially responsible step to protect the welfare of our community. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends limiting large gatherings and discretionary face-to-face meetings, so for the safety of our community and our employees, we’ve decided to postpone the event.

Thank you to all of the generous businesses and individuals who donated items for the event, purchased tickets, helped with the planning and contributed in other ways. Your generosity each year makes a difference in the lives of those who receive services from LifeScape. We have not yet set a rescheduled date for the fundraiser but will send out updated information when those details have been finalized.
