Sent on behalf of Morgan Seibert and Frank Dyer, DIFFA/Chicago Auxiliary Board Co-Chairs.

Dear All:

It is truly with a heavy heart that our DIFFArence 90’s Lip Sync Battle Committee and Knoll, our venue host, have made the difficult – but, we believe, the right – decision, to postpone the March 12th 90’s Lip Sync Battle based on the most recent developments and concerns related to COVID-19.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We are grateful to our amazing vendors, Lip Sync teams, sponsors and guests for the extremely positive, enthusiastic response to this year’s DIFFArence event, and we will be reaching out shortly to reschedule the event.

Best regards,
Morgan and Frank
