A tradition of fundraising for OAFP Foundation (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 “winner’s choice” quilt and announce that tickets are officially available to purchase!
Once again, the talented Sarah Sams, MD, OAFP past president, will donate this year’s quilt. To change it up and add some fun, the winner will have the opportunity to work with Dr. Sams to create a custom-designed quilt of their choosing. That’s right, this year’s winner will be able to choose a design and color scheme guaranteed to match their home and style–don’t miss out on this chance!
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 Foundation 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 15.
