Every year, AAHPA conference attendees enjoy a lively banquet dinner with local entertainment and a raffle. Prizes are donated from our members and the host community. This year due to Covid, we're unable to be together for the banquet. And as you all know, the proceeds from the raffle support AAHPA's incredible scholarship program. In 2020, we awarded two $3,250 scholarships to Alaska students entering marine-related fields with funds raised through the raffle. (read more about our scholarships here)
This year, we're going ahead and asking for straight donations during the fall Port & Harbor Lunch Series. We know you would be in Nome if you could - buying reams of raffle tickets and going for the gold. While we anticipate serious enthusiasm for the Nome conference and raffle in 2021, the AAHPA Board of Directors is passing the hat for scholarships this year. Please consider donating below, or you can send a check to AAHPA, 602 Shellfish Ave, Homer, AK 99603. All proceeds will go towards our 2021 scholarships.
