pure mendocino 2021 is canceled


On Friday, Aug. 6, the board of directors of the Cancer Resource Centers of Mendocino County made the difficult decision to cancel Pure Mendocino 2021.

With the rising number of COVID infections in our county, the highly contagious Delta variant in circulation, and new information about transmission of the virus even among vaccinated people, we know that this decision is the right one, although it is heartbreaking.

As a grassroots agency dedicated to improving the quality of life of cancer patients in our county, we cannot responsibly hold a large event that could result in additional new infections. We also recognize that our hospitals and healthcare providers are already spread thin, and we do not want to increase their burden.

We are in the process of contacting each of our guests and sponsors to find out their preferred method of refund. Please know that Pure Mendocino is the single biggest fundraiser for the Cancer Resource Centers, and if you opt instead to donate your ticket price, we will be deeply grateful.

We all look with hope and anticipation to the final end of this pandemic and we thank you for your understanding.

Please call me if you have any questions.
