BOTSA Fundraising for Rose Parade Float

The profession of occupational therapy will celebrate its 100-year anniversary in 2017. To honor this centennial, the Tournament of Roses Executive Committee accepted the Occupational Therapy Centennial Float as an official entry in the 2017 Annual Tournament of Rose Parade. The Occupational Therapy Centennial Float will honor the 100-year history of the profession, representing over 350,000 occupational therapy practitioners and millions of consumers worldwide. The Tournament of Roses Parade is one of the largest social rituals in the world, with over 50 million television viewers around the globe, over 700,000 attendees along the parade route and another 60,000 viewers of the float display post-parade. To support the costs of float design and construction they need to raise $275,000.

As part of the fundraising campaign, all occupational therapy academic programs in the country are asked to donate a minimum of $1,000 to help meet this goal. The Brenau Student OT Association officially launched our GoFundMe site for the Rose Bowl Parade fundraiser. In order to meet the deadline for the competition, BOTSA hopes to raise $1000 by Friday, Dec. 9.

Please support the Brenau School of OT and the profession by contributing to this worthy event. Thank you for your support.
