All group activities at ERC will be cancelled through March. We will reassess in the near future and let you know when we are able to continue our group activities.
ERC has also shutdown all Childhood Development Centers for the near future. We are out on Spring Break next week and will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and discuss at what time is the best opportunity to open our CDC's again. Our plan is to bring children back into the CDC's after Spring Break on March 30th.
As always our number one priority is the safety and well being of our clients and staff who serve them. Please be patient as things seem to change on a day by day basis. Thanks!!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic this year's Haute Trash Couture Fashion Show has been postponed. Please stay tuned for any updates as soon as we get them.
We would like to invite you to join for a fun-filled evening on May 7th at ERC's Haute Trash Couture Fashion Show to be held at Sassafras Winery and Vineyard. This second-year event is a fantastic chance to join us in a one-of-a kind performance show to create fashion out of trash in order to entertain, educate, and empower others to rethink how we look at stereotypical beauty. Our show seeks to break down these boundaries. Fashionistas can either make their item or beg a friend to do it using recyclable, re-purposed, reclaimed, restored, underused and throwaway trash. Our goals are to promote environmental sustainability, change views toward stereotypical beauty and fashion, and to raise money for the Elizabeth Richardson Center.
The evening will begin at 7PM and will feature a one-of-a kind fashion show, wine, food, and raffles for prizes throughout the evening.
