ELKINS — The pandemic resurgence has prompted Davis Health System (DHS) officials to cancel the Vibe and Jive event slated for this Saturday, August 21, 2021 at the Rotary Amphitheater in the Elkins Town Square.
“The decision to cancel was made with everyone’s health and safety in mind,” said Davis Health System Foundation Executive Director Mike Bell.
In light of a dramatic spike in COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations throughout Randolph and neighboring counties, DHS announced it will follow CDC recommendations to avoid large events and gatherings.
“While we are disappointed that the event had to be canceled, we must lead by example in keeping the well-being of our community at the forefront throughout the pandemic,” said Bell.
The live music, food trucks, and family activities, which were scheduled from 3:30 pm to 9 pm have been cancelled.
Bell explained that the Cash Drawing planned in conjunction with the concert will still take place.
“We are continuing to offer tickets for the cash raffle which includes $250, $500, and $1,000 prizes. Tickets can be purchased for $10 by calling or emailing the Foundation office.” Proceeds from the raffle will go toward the purchase of new infant hearing screening equipment for the Family Birthing Center at DMC.
Cash raffle tickets will be on sale through August 31 and can be purchased by calling 304.630.3043 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org. The prize drawings will be held and announced September 1.
