Reviews for The Orthotic & Prosthetic Assistance Fund, Inc.
OPAF has jointly sponsored an event with me. The organization publicized the event, coordinated the volunteers, arranged logistics, and ran the events. All the participants were thrilled with the tennis clinic. The professional running the tennis clinic was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and a great motivator. We had people with various disabilities, some who had never played tennis before and some who play regularly. Everyone had a good time and wanted it to become an annual event!
