Coronavirus in Oklahoma: Down syndrome fundraising luncheon canceled

The Down Syndrome Association of Central Oklahoma (DSACO) announced Friday it has canceled its “Knock Your Socks Off!” Fundraising Luncheon as a precaution amid concerns about the coronavirus.

The event was originally set for March 23.

A news release stated the association did "not want to put any of our families and supporters at risk and most importantly our loved ones with Down syndrome who already have a compromised autoimmune system, which puts them at a higher risk of contracting and recovering from the virus."

Donations may still be made to DSACO at or by mailing a check to DSACO, 521 W Wilshire, Suite 130, Oklahoma City, OK 73116.
