The Foundation extends its sincere gratitude to the many OAFP members, Foundation trustees, family, friends, staff, and volunteers whose generosity, participation, and support helped achieve donations totaling over $8,000 during the 2016 August fundraising activities!
The following activities are the Foundations major annual fundraisers that benefit its programs:
The success of the silent auction is dependent on the generous donation of items from OAFP members, their office staff and patients, small businesses, pharmaceutical companies, local businesses, and OAFP regional chapters.
Historically, the Foundation sees the highest bidding generated from OSU memorabilia, sporting event tickets, vacation/weekend get-a-ways, golf packages, theme baskets, jewelry, artwork, antiques, crystal/glassware, and Ohio or family medicine themed items. Unique and hard to find items are also popular. All donations to the auction are considered tax-deductible, charitable contributions.
OAFP Past Presidents Quilt
A tradition of fundraising for the Foundation programs through an annual quilt raffle was begun by Diane Todd and the OAFP auxiliary members in 1990. In 2000, a new twist on this tradition was introduced when OAFP Past Presidents Mark Belfer, DO; Ross Black, II, MD; and Mary Jo Welker, MD; sponsored the purchase of the quilt so that all raffle proceeds would benefit the Foundation’s programs.
This tradition has grown each and each year more past presidents join in sponsoring the quilt raffle.
