Encompass Reschedules Rise & Thrive Breakfast and Caspar Babypants Concert

Forwarded on behalf of Encompass NW

Encompass is rescheduling two big spring events in order to comply with Governor Jay Inslee’s guidelines for community gatherings during the COVID-19 outbreak.

The first is a family concert with Caspar Babypants, which has been rescheduled from March 21 to Sunday, May 31, 10:30-11:15 am. This performance is part of the Encompass Rocks the Valley family concert series benefitting the It Starts Here campaign to build a new Encompass pediatric therapy clinic and early learning center in Snoqualmie.

The second is the Encompass Rise & Thrive Breakfast, which has been rescheduled from April 21 to Tuesday, May 19, 7:30-9:00 am. Now in its fourth year, the Rise & Thrive Breakfast brings together over 250 community leaders, educators, local businesses, and parents to create a community where ALL children thrive. This year’s breakfast will feature keynote speaker Rebecca Partridge, MD, who will be speaking on the importance of early intervention in childhood development.

“It has not been easy to make these decisions, but we know it is the right thing to do for the health of our community,” says Encompass Executive Director Nela Cumming. “We hope that our community will recognize the importance of supporting each other, first by practicing social distancing during these next few weeks, and then by attending these events to ensure that our local nonprofits are able to continue providing crucial services to the public.”
