(POSTPONED) 11th Annual Chili Cook-Off and Craft Beer Contest @ Our Lady of Grace Church
Apr 18 @ 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm

 

Dear TRUE Mentors family,
It is with huge regret that we announce the postponement of TRUE Mentor’s 11th annual Chili Cookoff and Craft Beer Contest, which was to have taken place in Hoboken on April 18th.
This decision has been prompted by the rapidly changing situation around coronavirus in the New York Metro area. During these unprecedented times, our priority has to be the safety of guests, participants and staff. We are extremely disappointed that we won’t be able to gather with you next month to sample the finest homemade chili recipes and craft beer that Hudson County has to offer, but we are working hard to find a time to reschedule for this fall. As soon as we have an update on a new date for this event, we’ll be back in touch.
The whole TRUE Mentors team would like to apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to INSERT EMAIL. We look forward to reconnecting soon and we thank you for your continued commitment to supporting Hoboken’s only one-to-one mentorship organization focused on empowering youth to reach their full potential.
Sincerely,
The TRUE Mentors team
