UPDATE MARCH 10: The following event is postponed until further notice in response to the public health concern surrounding the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, according to James Lee, president and CEO of the Richmond Chamber of Commerce. Guests who paid to attend will receive a full refund through the chamber. “This decision comes at the urging of health officials to cancel or postpone all in-person, non-essential gatherings in an effort to control the spread of the virus,” Lee said.
