What do you get when you take a lump of graphite and a bunch of carbon atoms and put them under great pressure? A diamond—nature’s best example of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.
What do you get when you take the ASHFoundation’s parties at ASHA Connect and the ASHA Convention, the annual Spring Appeal, a Revolutionary Raffle and Innovation Giveaway Baskets—and pack them into a few short months? A lot of ASHA members having fun for a great cause—the ASHFoundation’s example of the whole being greater than the sum of its individual fundraising parts.
  • Sips and Sights at ASHA Connect, July 21—Enter Baltimore’s American Visionary Art Museum through the Shining Youth/Shining Walls, built by at-risk youth, and experience the transformation of dreams, loss, hopes and ideals into powerful, sometimes quirky, works of art. Have fun while you sample the unique flavors of Baltimore, network with conference participants and support the ASHFoundation. Tickets are $65 per person and available on the Connect registration form or by calling 877-585-6005.

  • Annual Spring Appeal—More than 6,000 people received an invitation from ASHFoundation president Allan Diefendorf to join the 2018 honor roll of donors. The fun really happens in November, when the ASHFoundation turns its donors’ gifts into $500,000-plus in 2018 scholarships and research grants. Get in on this excitement—donate online (on.asha.org/ashf-donor-form) or call 301-296-8704.

  • Revolutionary Raffle (ends July 31)—Don’t miss this last opportunity to win a VIP trip to the ASHA 2018 Convention in Boston, including registration, hotel, tickets to ASHFoundation events, dinner in Boston, and more. Purchase tickets online or by calling 301-296-8700.

  • Fenway Park Party—What could be more fun than attending a private party at Boston’s historic and iconic Fenway Park? The ballpark will be open to ASHFoundation supporters only at the fundraiser on Thursday evening during the convention. Look for details in the August ASHA Leader. The event’s corporate sponsors include Aegis Therapies, Brookes Publishing, EBS Healthcare, Pearson and SpeechPathology.com

  • Innovation Giveaway Baskets—The ASHFoundation’s exhibit booth at the convention will be the hub for giving—and giveaways. Donors can win eight baskets, each filled with the latest technology—such as an iPad, iPhone, Apple Watch, Google VR, Pixel phone, Jibo social robot and more. Look for details in the August ASHA Leader.

Thousands of ASHA members and donors will participate in at least one of these events and raise more than $500,000 to support the ASHFoundation’s innovation mission. Will you be part of the fun?
