‘Massive Snowfall’ Puts WPC Dinner on Hold

Snowmageddon 2010 has snuffed out another event.
This time, it’s the Washington Press Club Foundation Congressional Dinner that was going to take place Wednesday night.

This note just went out to the foundation board, sponsors and those organizing the purchase of tables.

The statement is from Jim Kuhnhenn, the foundation president and scribe from the AP Washington Bureau.

“Sadly, we have been forced by impending weather to reschedule Wednesday’s Washington Press Club Foundation Congressional Dinner. Many members are still stranded in their home states and the threat of another massive snowfall has made it necessary to hold the dinner on another date. We are discussing alternative dates with our key participants and will advise as soon as possible.

“We regret having to make this decision, as we were all looking forward to hosting a convivial evening this week for members of Congress and the press; unfortunately, that won’t be possible on Feb. 10. We thank all the organizations that have purchased tables and the sponsors that are supporting us. Though postponed, the show will go on.

“We appreciate your patience as we reschedule the festivities.”
