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 so that all raffle proceeds would benefit the Foundation’s programs.
This tradition has grown each year as more past presidents join in sponsoring the quilt raffle.
The Foundation is pleased to highlight this year’s quilt and announce that tickets are officially available to purchase!
Handmade and donated by OAFP Past President Sarah Sams, MD, the quilt’s intricate design and custom colors are sure to fit any Ohio home! It’s truly yet another magnificent work of art – you don’t want to miss out on a chance of adding this item to your household!
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 9.
