Thank you all again so much for your contributions. With the money raised, we were able to successfully confirm our event with Anant Agarwal for Novemeber 12.
Despite our original confirmation, I am disappointed to announce the cancellation of our event with Anant Agarwal. Unfortunately, Mr. Agarwal has informed us that he will not be able to attend due to personal reasons.
To everyone who contributed to our crowdfunding campaign, we apologize. Although Anant Agarwal will no longer be coming to the Berkeley Forum, I can ensure you that the funds raised will be used to further our mission of providing a forum for a wide range of ideas on Berkeley's campus.
All of the funds raised from the crowdfunding campaign that were intended for this event will be used for our talk with Tony DeRose, the lead of the Research Group at Pixar. With the remaining funds we were able to add a number of additional events, which we will be announcing later this week.
All crowdfunding perks can be applied towards any future event, as originally specified.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at: email@example.com.
Again, thank you for your generous donations and thank you for your understanding.
Director of Development at the Berkeley Forum
