Valley Village Country Classic Postponed due to COVID-19

The Valley Village Country Classic is postponed for the safety of our communities while COVID-19 remains a threat. 

While it was a difficult decision, our team decided to postpone the Valley Village Country Classic which was scheduled for Thursday, May 14 at 6 pm, because we care about your safety and wellbeing. The new date is September 10, 2020, at 6 pm. Tickets already purchased will be honored, and sponsorships will be used to support the event on the new date.

Although we won’t be gathering in person until September, Valley Village still needs your support to meet our fundraising goals with the uncertainty the COVID-19 outbreak is causing. If you can contribute to Valley Village, please do so at www.valleyvillage.org/giving. Also, please do your Amazon shopping at www.smile.amazon.com and select Valley Village as your charitable recipient and Amazon will donate 5% of your purchase to Valley Village.

We believe that with your help we can lessen the impact of COVID-19 on our mission to protect, foster, develop and advance the rights and interests of people with developmental disabilities. 

Thank you for your support during this challenging time for our community and our organization.
