OPAF TO HOLD EVENTS AT 2003 AOPA NATIONAL ASSEMBLY / LOOK FOR THE OPAF
BOOTH IN THE RENO HILTON’S GRAND SALON

Washington, DC – The O&P Assistance Fund (OPAF), the official
philanthropy of the U.S. O&P community, will be holding a number of
events during the 2003 AOPA National Assembly in Reno (October 22-25,
2003). These events include a First Swing clinic in cooperation with the
National Amputee Golf Association (Tuesday, October 21), the
always-popular OPAF Silent Auction (Wednesday-Saturday, October 22-25)
and the inaugural Thranhardt Golf Classic at the Golf Club at Red Hawk,
one of Reno’s finest courses (Wednesday, October 22).

Mark your calendars and join us in support of OPAF’s mission to enable
individuals with physical disabilities – especially those served by
members of the orthotics and prosthetics community – to enjoy the
rewards of personal achievement, physical fitness, and social
interaction.

OPAF Seeks Volunteers

The Fund is always seeking volunteers to help grow and support its
programs. If you or someone you know can offer an hour or two to help us
with our Reno events, we would be most grateful. To learn more about
volunteering for Fund, in Reno and elsewhere in the future, please
contact us.

OPAF is a 501(c)(3) public charity, the official philanthropy of the
U.S. orthotics and prosthetics community, established in 1995 by the
Orthotic and Prosthetic National Office. Dedicated initially to
providing financial and in-kind support to the 1996 Paralympics, OPAF
now generates its own initiatives through partnerships with individuals,
organizations and institutions engaged in raising public awareness of
disability and improving the quality of rehabilitation medicine, science
and technology.

As a community-focused nonprofit organization, OPAF aims primarily to
enable individuals with physical disabilities-especially those served by
members of the orthotics and prosthetics community-to enjoy the rewards
of personal achievement, physical fitness, and social interaction.

All contributions to OPAF are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of
U.S. law, and annual sponsorships of OPAF, its programs, and its
fundraisers are available to every individual, institution, and company
inside and beyond the O&P community. For more information about
sponsorship opportunities contact OPAF at 1666 K Street NW, Suite 440,
Washington, DC 20006, Tel. (202) 223-2878, email [email protected], or
