February 2019
A Message From Our President
Ryan J. Hall, Cooper-Smith
2018-2019 AAF Toledo President
February is the month of love, excitement, and freezing cold weather! Although, nothing can beat the Arctic sledge hammer we just received at the end of January. Here’s to hoping that spring comes early this year!
Another reason to get excited about February is for our annual ADDY Awards! The ADDYs are the advertising industry's largest and most representative competition, attracting over 40,000 entries every year in local events. The AAF Toledo ADDY Awards are the first of a three-tier, national competition. The evening begins at 5:30 p.m. with entry viewing, buffet dinner, cash bar, and live music! Award presentation begins at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $50 each or ten for $450. Student tickets are $30. Tickets may be purchased in advance by visiting .
Save the date for Friday, March 29 and start recruiting bowlers for our annual AdPIN bowling tournament! This sell-out event is a fan favorite and includes, glow bowling, shoes, food, trophies and more! Online registration is now available and teams are encouraged to register early as space is limited. Again, this event sells out fast so be sure to book your team now!
Thank you for your continued support of AAF Toledo. Keep up with all that is happening by following us on Facebook , Instagram , LinkedIn , and Twitter , or by visiting for current event and program information!
If you would like to become more involved within the club, we have several committees that could use your help! We would love to have your input, and you do not need to be on the Board of Governors in order to participate. To find out more about becoming involved on one of our committees, please reach out to Patty Schoepf by clicking HERE .
