We are very disappointed to announce that the PCS Spring Gala, originally scheduled for April 27, 2020 at The Edison Ballroom, is cancelled. In following the guidance of the Governor and the Mayor, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the New York State and New York City Departments of Health, it was clear that cancelling was both necessary and unavoidable as our community fights against COVID-19. As at all times, the health and safety of the PCS community are of the utmost importance to us.

We particularly extend our heartfelt thanks to the Spring Gala's Honorary Chairs, Vice Chairs, and Host Committee, and all of our contributors for generously supporting this important event to raise money for The Dr. James Dawson Fund for Financial Aid. These funds are needed now more than ever.

Ticket buyers will be contacted in the coming days about next steps, and we will look forward to finding other meaningful ways in the future to honor Dr. Dawson's 25th year.

Wishing everyone good health and safety!
