Pat Copa Volunteer Award

Each year at OFFF, a hard working volunteer is awarded the Pat Copa award. The award is given in memory of Pat Copa who defined “dependable” and “thorough”, and who worked tirelessly as an OFFF volunteer.

Bob and Betsy Baily were selected as the 2014 Pat Copa Volunteer award winners. Bob and Betsy are the competition curators for the Fiber Arts Division of OFFF. These wonderful individuals create beautiful displays which, as Bob says, “treat each piece of art as being very special”. Check the OFFF Facebook page to see photos of their work and visit the Gallery to see the artistic display in person.

Watch for the presentation of the 2015 Pat Copa Volunteer Award during the Festival!
