Win a Pendleton Blanket--and support history!

You could win a $5,000 Pendleton blanket for only $20!

Tickets remain for a small but important raffle to benefit the Oregon Medical Association/Oregon Medical Education Foundation's History of Medicine in Oregon Project. As regular readers may know, OHSU Historical Collections & Archives is a partner in this project, which aims to produce a documentary about the history of medicine in the state from the earliest settlers to the present day. Much of the material has been collected, and now production can begin—once we have the funding to do it!

As an official Oregon 150 project, the project steering committee received #111 of the 150 blankets specially created by Pendleton to celebrate the state sesquicentennial (Click on the attached flyer for a photo of the blanket). Only 500 tickets will be sold. The drawing will be held at the OMA meeting on April 24, but you do not need to be present to win.

Tickets are $20 a piece. Contact Leanna Lind at leannalind[at]aol.com to purchase tickets. Thank you for your support--and good luck!
