17th Annual Founders’ Evening
A Special Event to Support our Scholarship Program!
Since 1999, the Foundation has been hosting the premier event celebrating osteopathic medicine and the men and women that excel in the profession. DO’s and friends of the profession gather annually for an evening of fellowship, awards and support for the foundation scholarship program.
Our 2017 Founders’ Evening will be held in the Modern Living Building at the State Fair Park in Yakima, WA on April 1, 2017. Beside the presentation of the Founders’ Awards, the evening will feature an special menu of healthy and local dishes prepared special for this event. This promises not to be your average rubber chicken banquet!
