Annual Recognition Dinner

The AAFP Foundation hosts this special dinner for its most dedicated donors.This is where the Philanthropist of the Year Award, Outstanding Program Award, and AAFP Award for Distinguished and Meritorious Service to Family Medicine are presented. Don't miss your chance to attend this one-of-a-kind dinner in the Orpheum Theater in New Orleans.  The Theater opened in 1918, and over the years has been a vaudeville stage, movie house, home for the New Orleans Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra and much more.  The Theater has been part of the National Register of Historic Places since 1982.  While severely damaged after Hurricane Katrina, it was reopened with all its original beauty and history in August 2015. 

This dinner is by invitation only to AAFP Foundation donors who have generously given $1,000 or more between August 1, 2017, and July 31, 2018.  Make a point to join us for this spectacular evening, and thank you for supporting your AAFP Foundation's programs.  If you have questions regarding your qualification to attend, please contact Erin Heffernan.

AAFP Foundation VIP Benefit
Friday, October 12

Boogie Woogie all night long with your AAFP Foundation as you enjoy exclusive access and VIP treatment at the World War II Museum in New Orleans.  Not only will you see spectacular Museum exhibits before everyone else, but as a VIP you will enjoy incredible food and drink, plus the Victory Swing Orchestra, Glamour Girls and a photo booth to commemorate your trip back in time.  Remember to Laissez les bons temps rouler and have a historic and fun-filled evening with your AAFP friends and colleagues!

There is so much to see and do at the National WWII Museum that you will want to take advantage of the early access!  The WWII Museum tells the story of the American experience in the war that changed the world--why it was fought, how it was won and what it means today--so that all generations will understand the price of freedom and be inspired by what they learn.  The museum's expansive collections include more than 250,000 artifacts and over 9,000 personal accounts.

Tickets are $300 each.  Space is limited so reserve your spot early for this exceptional night.  Proceeds from this charitable event benefit the humanitarian, educational and scientific programs of your AAFP Foundation.

We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!
