Mystery By Design 4.0 is Cancelled for Monday, March 30, 2020 Due to Coronavirus Concern

March 11, 2020

Dear Friends,

The health and safety of our supporters and guests during this challenging time is of utmost importance, so the Designers + Builders Alliance of Long Island have made the difficult decision to cancel the Mystery By Design 4.0 event scheduled for Monday, March 302020.  Please inform your invited guests of this news. We are all disappointed not to celebrate in person, but feel this is the most considerate option at this time.

Proceeds of this event have been earmarked for Kids Need More, who are looking forward to receiving funds from the DBA. It is our intent to provide them with as much funding as possible.  We thank you in advance for allowing your donations to move forward to Kids Need More as they are working hard to fulfill their mission and help as many children and their families as possible.

However, we understand that some may wish to request a refund of your sponsorship, tickets or journal ads.  If that is the case, please email Arthur Belli, CPA, DBA’s treasurer, by April 1, 2020 and cc Ellen Baker,

If you have provided a raffle item, please know that we plan to donate them directly to Kids Need More for use at their next fundraiser.  If you would like to make arrangements for the return of your item or if you have further questions, please contact by April 1, 2020.

We are working to format our journal so it can be viewed as a PDF on the DBA website as well as sending it out in an email blast to recognize the generosity of our sponsors, raffle donors and advertisers. Please stay-tuned for that and upcoming news. There will be an opportunity to support Kids Need More on Monday, March 30th at 7pm with an online portal to be announced.  

We thank you in advance for your generosity and offer our sincerest apologies but we look forward to continuing your kind support of Kids Need More so more kids can have a wonderful camp experience. 


Very truly yours,

Ellen Baker & T.J. Costello, Co-Presidents
