Ohio AAP Event Raises $14,000 for Early Literacy

The Ohio AAP’s Litera-SEA Fundraiser on June 11, 2017 was a success! The event at the COSI Center for Science in Columbus had more than 50 people in attendance, including many foster families, raised more than $14,000 for early literacy! These events have raised $149,000 since 2007!

At the event, children were able to decorate bike helmets that will be given to Ohio legislators to remind them of the importance of bike helmet safety. The children were also treated to a special guest reader, Professor Albus Dumbledore, played by Charles Spencer, MD, FAAP, Ohio AAP Foundation Pillar Chair.

Ohio AAP Advocacy Chair Liaison, William Cotton, MD, FAAP, shared the many great resources the Ohio AAP offers to families and our emcee for the evening was Mikaela Hunt, co-host of Momcast.

The Ohio AAP Foundation Pillar would like to thank our generous program and table sponsors for Splish, Splash, Stories 2017 Litera-sea fundraiser.
