For a number of years the Department has had a "PARADE OF
CHECKS” at our Mid-Winter conference to support the "Combs, Comedy, Bentfeld
Hospice/Cancer Restricted Fund,” along with the Auxiliary Cancer Fund. Overall a
highly successful event!
Today the Auxiliary Cancer Fund is self-supporting and no longer requires direct
donations/contributions. The "Combs, Comedy, Bentfeld Hospice/Cancer
Restricted Fund,” still remains as an option for Post/District donations. Nowadays,
there are other important areas in the Department that need the same level of
help and support the Parade of Check can provide!
Beginning Department Mid-Winter Conference January 2020, we are "re-purposing” the Parade of Checks to support Voice of Democracy (VOD) Fund and
Veterans Service Fund (50/50 split). Your help will ensure Ohio maintains its
premier Voice of Democracy program now and into the future and help retain
highly experience Veterans Service Officers fighting daily for Veterans Benefits.
Department leadership, to include the auxiliary, support this change to the Parade
of Checks and wants to get the word out now as many District/Posts start fund
raising early for this event.
