Mansion in May has become Mansion in Maybe, another casualty of the coronavirus pandemic.
The month-long charity event at Tyvan Hill in New Vernon has been postponed, the Women’s Association for Morristown Medical Center has announced:
Please be advised that due to COVID-19 we have decided to postpone the opening of Mansion in May. We are not opening in May to protect our patrons, volunteers and our dedicated designer team. We are making plans to open later in 2020 and will announce the details in a few weeks.
We hope everyone stays safe, healthy and please keep our doctors and nurses at Morristown Medical Center in your thoughts as they battle this virus.
Held every few years, Mansion in May showcases an area mansion that is redecorated for the occasion by an army of local designers and landscapers. Proceeds from tours benefits the hospital.
This year’s edition, the 19th since 1974, aims to raise at least $1.5 million towards the expansion of the hospital’s Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute.
