Normalcy. Even after a small glimpse of it this spring, we are saddened that the COVID-19 pandemic has resurged and once again, life is anything but normal.
The Great 100, Inc.’s greatest hope was to bring back our wonderful gala in 2021, recognizing our North Carolina nurses who have selflessly and courageously fought for our communities across the state. Unfortunately, as the pandemic resurges, our Board of Directors is forced to reconsider having an in-person gala.
Gathering would not only send an inappropriate and irresponsible message to our fellow North Carolinians, but it would jeopardize the health and safety of our greatest resource: our nursing teammates. In an effort to ensure the safety of everyone involved, we have chosen to cancel the 2021 Great 100 Nursing Gala.
We are deeply saddened, however, the Great 100, Inc. is committed to recognizing and honoring the 2021 Great 100 Nurses of North Carolina. Our Board of Directors is currently working on a meaningful remote celebration for the class of 2021. Recipients will still be honored and receive their plaques, pins and awards program with safety in mind.
Please know this was a very difficult decision for our board members who look forward to our gala each year. If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss, please feel free to reach out to me.
In highest regards,
Jeffrey T. Friday
President, The Great 100, Inc.
