Around the world, festivals, sporting events, conferences and community celebrations are being cancelled or postponed due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19. The State of New Mexico has limited gatherings to 5 people or less. In consultation with the State and Sandia Casino Management there is no indication that these restrictions will be lifted soon or anytime in the foreseeable future. The Music Guild of New Mexico recognizes the dangers a large gathering can pose, so the MGNM Executive Committee has made the exceedingly difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Señorita Ball and suspend Grants for this year.
We will keep the membership updated on how and when we will be able to honor and celebrate our 2020 Señoritas.
As you may know, for our small community organization the annual Señorita Ball is usually the only opportunity we have to earn an income to provide educational community grants and to continue existing for another year. To ensure the survival of the Guild, the Executive Committee has decided that we will move the Silent Auction portion of the Ball online starting July 1, 2020. Our Auction Committee has gathered some amazing items!
