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 www.dsaco.org/donate or by mailing a check to DSACO, 521 W Wilshire, Suite 130, Oklahoma City, OK 73116.
