July 29th, 2020

Dear Sisters and Supporters, 

I'm sure that it will not come as a surprise to anyone that we have made the decision to cancel all in person components of our 37th Annual Care Affair. This decision was made in an effort to protect the health and safety of each of you, as well as the staff of The Manor, and in keeping with the mandate from Governor Kemp that events of 50+ people are not currently allowed. 

We are however still going to hold an online auction, which will feature the items we had planned for the live auction. This includes the trio of Care Affair's hallmark items: Jewelry, Trips, and CURE Patient Artwork. 

The online auction ( will go live on August 19th at 9am and will run until August 29th at 9pm. 

In these 10 Days, with our 10 items, we are hoping to raise 10K!! 

So please be on the lookout for sneak peeks of these fantastic items and we can't wait to help RACE to reach our 10K goal!!! 

In addition, if you would still like to contribute financially to support CURE Childhood Cancer, you may do so just just below this note. Cancer didn't stop just because of COVID... so let's rally around those who are facing the challenges of both this pandemic AND having a child with pediatric cancer. 

Please know that our Atlanta TriDelta chapter, CURE, the TriDelta Foundation and myself personally are all deeply grateful for all of the early support and sponsorships that we have received and are thrilled that we are able to give back this year and want to trying to come as close as possible to the level of giving that we have historically achieved. 

In closing, if you have any questions, please feel free to send those via email to 

With Immense Gratitude,

COVID - 19 Statement

March 12, 2020

Dear Sisters, Supporters, and Sponsors,

We wanted to make sure you all know that we, like you, are keeping a very close eye on the COVID-19 outbreak and the implications this has for all of us.

We certainly can not predict how things may change in the weeks leading up to May 2nd, but we are committed to being vigilant in our pursuit to support CURE Childhood Cancer and Tri Delta Foundation before, during, and after this year’s Care Affair.

Because we are working to raise money for pediatric cancer, we are keenly familiar with how important it is to protect them, and others, from something as potentially harmful as the Cornavirus.

Therefore, we are, of course committed to keeping the safety of all of our guests and the staff of The Manor at the forefront of our minds, as we monitor, plan for, and/or make any modifications needed for this year’s event.

At this point, most of you have just received, or will soon receive your invitation to Care Affair 2020. So, before you throw your RSVP out, please keep in mind the following:

1) We are planning for and hopeful to have a traditional, “in-person” event at The Manor on May 2nd

2) We are diligently working on alternate plans to host a modified or virtual event (if needed), and are committed to being swift and transparent in communicating this to you as these changes are made

3) We hope that regardless of how Care Affair may change, that the spirit of giving to a worthy cause will not change at all, and that everyone will consider giving now and not wait until the night of to show their support for both CURE Childhood Cancer and Tri Delta Foundation. They need us now more than ever.

So, as you are racing to grab that last pack of toilet paper at your grocery store, we hope you will consider continuing to support Care Affair as we RACE to help find a CURE for childhood cancer!

We appreciate each of you,


Leah Yarbrough

Vice President of Philanthropy,

We are thrilled to share that Care Affair won't be stuck in the stables!!! 

We have rescheduled our event for Saturday, August 29th, 2020 and will remain at The Manor Golf & Country Club. 

We are keeping our Derby Theme and will be having a pre-party for the actual race, which will be run on the following Saturday. So keep looking (online at this point) for that perfect hat to coordinate with your dress (or bowtie for you fellas)! 

And while you are doing your online searching, we hope you'll enjoy a glass of wine to help UNCORK-A-CURE! (We also approve of an uncork-your-sanity approach - for all you who recently got promoted to being a home school teacher!!) It's shipped right to your door! Either way, here is the link:

Aside from the date change, we are planning to mirror the swanky evening we had planned, which will include the following: 
- Open Bar and Gourmet Goodies 
- 50/50 Raffle 
- Scrumptious Supper 
- Live Auction 

And of course, we will be adding heightened hygiene measures to ensure the continued safety of all of our sponsors, sisters, and supporters!  

RSVPs: Simply click on Tickets Link Above.

If you still want to send us regular mail RSVP, please do so by August 1st. If you still want to send us regular mail RSVP, we ask that you do so by August 1st. And if you have already mailed in your RSVP but wish to change it, please email me here - 

If can't come but want to donate, you may easily do so below.

So mark your calendars or add it to your app! We can't wait to SEE you for an evening of fellowship and fundraising!  

Betting on The Best,
