The Chamber’s board of directors met last Wednesday, June 10th and decided that due to the current circumstances related to COVID-19, as well as the uncertainty of what guidelines will be going forward, that we must unfortunately cancel our annual Buttonwillow Mayor’s Race Dinner.
We had two OUTSTANDING candidates this year, Lillian DeLaRosa and Mario Delfino, that worked hard from the Kickoff party to the Golf Tournament with their campaign teams to raise money to support the Chamber for the community. We truly appreciate them and every person who supported their events.
At our March meeting both campaigns agreed to cease any fundraising efforts so as a board we decided to declare the 2020 Mayor of Buttonwillow based on funds raised as of that day. We are excited to announce that the 2020 Honorary Mayor of Buttonwillow is MARIO DELFINO!
Thank you again to Lillian, Mario, their sponsors, and all of you for your support of this year’s Buttonwillow Mayor’s Race. We are greatly looking forward to continuing our traditions next year.
We had many GREAT auction items donated for the live and silent auctions that were to take place at the Mayor’s Race Dinner. We will be holding on to those items in hopes of bringing you another fun and exciting auction at a later date this year.
Congratulations again, 2020 Honorary Mayor of Buttonwillow, Mr. Mario Delfino.
