Dear Hong Fook Supporters,
It is with a heavy heart that we would like to inform you that 2020 Hong Fook Gala has been cancelled. The fast evolving COVID -19 pandemic has caught us all off guard. In order to protect our communities, we have made the difficult decision to cancel 2020 Hong Fook Gala.
Hong Fook continues to offer mental health services during these difficult times through virtual care. In fact, Hong Fook is answering more phone calls than ever. Hong Fook continues to be here for anyone who experiences mental health concerns, whether it is COVID – 19 related or not.
Hong Fook Gala is a major fundraising event for Hong Fook. The fund that Hong Fook Gala raises is important to the operation of many Hong Fook critical mental health services. With the cancellation of Hong Fook Gala, the challenge for all of us is to find other ways of raising funds to meet the ongoing mental health needs of our communities. The pandemic makes it even more important to address mental health issues. Research is projecting that mental health needs will rapidly escalate, and we must be ready to increase our services to meet the demands.
In order to address the increased mental health needs due to the pandemic, we have also decided to launch a workshop series for the public on June 6, 2020 called “Together We Thrive – overcoming the mental health challenges with the Asian Communities.” We will be in touch shortly to let you know more about this. At the meantime, please continue to support Hong Fook by make a generous donation.
As always, Hong Fook is here for you and the communities. Hong Fook continues to operate. During this difficult time, if you or anyone you know experiences mental health distress, please call Hong Fook at 416-493-4242.
Should you have any questions or need further information, please contact Ruiping Chen at email@example.com or 416-493-4242 X 2258. Let’s continue this Journey of Hope together.
Thank you again for supporting Hong Fook.
