Cuero, Texas: The Summer Weekend Wind Down Dueling Pianos event has been postponed, per a vote by the DeWitt Medical Foundation Board of Directors. The event, which was scheduled for Friday, July 24th from 7 p.m. – 11 p.m. at The Venue on Church Street, was postponed due to the latest influx of positive cases of COVID-19 in the area.

“Due to the concern of the number of new cases we are seeing in DeWitt County, as well as in surrounding counties, we as a board voted unanimously to postpone the event out of concern for the safety and well-being of those planning to attend,” said Martin Leske, Dewitt Medical Foundation Board President. “Given so many unknown factors with the pandemic, we felt it best to postpone the event and reschedule to a date later in the year. Once we finalize the new date, we will communicate that to our table/ticket holders as well as the general public,” said Leske.

The Dueling Pianos event features two pianos, each with a top-notch entertainer from the group Piano Punch out of Austin, who play requested songs. The audience can offer tips to increase the likelihood that a song of choice will be played. The event also features a cash bar and a food court. Once the new date has been set for the event, the attendees, as well as the general public, will be notified.

DeWitt Medical Foundation Coordinator Nikki Lantz said, “For those that have purchased tables or tickets, they have the option to be refunded or keep their same table or individual tickets for the event once it has been rescheduled.” Lantz said that DeWitt Medical Foundation appreciates the sponsors’ and attendees’ patience and understanding as they work to reschedule the event. “These uncertain times make event planning challenging. Our main focus is to keep our attendees’ well-being and health at the forefront of our planning. That is why we made the move to postpone the event and look forward to rescheduling to a date in the future.”
