In 1990, Diane Todd and the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians’ auxiliary members began an annual tradition of fundraising for OAFP Foundation programs through a quilt raffle. 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 and more tickets are purchased.
The Foundation is pleased to highlight this year’s quilt for the annual Past Presidents’ Quilt Raffle 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 bold colors are uplifting and unique. It’s truly a 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 announced during the Academy Luncheon during the OAFP’s Family Medicine Celebration on Saturday, August 3. You do not need to be present to win, but we encourage you to attend! You can even purchase quilt tickets when registering for the Family Medicine Celebration.
All ticket purchases made in advance of the meeting will be filled out and entered into the raffle for you.
