2016 Silent Auction

Greetings of the Day!

What do lobsters, Sam Adams Ale, lighthouses, the Freedom Trail, the Red Sox and Harvard Yard all have in common? Why New England of course! OPAF will be in New England's largest city – Boston, Massachusetts, September 7-11 for the 99th AOPA National Assembly meeting at Hynes Convention Center. The National Assembly will bring together 2,500 O&P professionals, therapists and end usesrs to see the latest and greatest in O&P technology.

One again, OPAF will be hosting its popular Silent Auction at the Assembly, but this year, we're bringing New England's unique flair to the auction.

Please consider donating to our New England style Silent Auction. Perhaps a weekend vacation in New England? Red Sox or Patriots memorabilia? Vermont maple syrup? A year's supply of Ben & Jerry's? Auction items can be New England themed or of your choice.

Funds generated from the auction allow OPAF to continue offering top-notch introductory level adaptive recreation to those with physical or mobility challenges AT NO CHARGE to any participant.

Attached is a Silent Auction donation form. As OPAF is a 501 (c)(3) public charity, all donations are tax deductible. Please return the donation form to the OPAF office by August 1 and your item, if applicable, by August 15, as we will be shipping to Boston by August 25.

Many thanks for your ongoing support of the work of OPAF & The First Clinics. To see if a First Clinic is coming to your neck of the woods, check our schedule at

P.S. - OPAF will host a First Dive Intro to Scuba Clinic on Sunday, Sept 11 at the Boston Sheraton Pool. Join us and see what the First Clinics offer!
