A tradition of fundraising for Foundation programs through an annual quilt raffle was begun by Diane Todd and the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians (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 and activity overall so that all raffle proceeds would benefit the OAFP Foundation’s (Foundation) programs.
This tradition has grown each year as more past presidents join in sponsoring the quilt raffle fundraising activity.
The Foundation is pleased to announce that tickets are officially available to purchase for this year’s quilt.
Once again, the talented Sarah Sams, MD, OAFP past president will create a beautiful, handmade quilt for this year’s winner. The image to the left includes a very small sampling of some of the beauties Dr. Sams has created in the past.
Purchase your tickets today for the opportunity to win this year’s quilt. Not only will you have the chance at winning, your purchase is also an investment in the future of your specialty. All proceeds from the quilt raffle will go towards programming that cultivates student career choice in the specialty of family medicine. What are you waiting for!
Tickets are one for $10, six for $50, or 12 for $100.
The winner will be drawn and announced during the virtual Annual Membership Meeting on Sunday, August 14.
