Child's Play: Raising Serious Money While Having Fun At The House Of Delegates
Most people don't think of Rock, Paper, Scissors as anything other than a child's game, but most people aren't Dr. Greg Ogata, newly elected President of the WSDA. "It's fun, it gets people's blood flowing a little, and it's a nice break from the business of the House," said Ogata. This year's event raised $1,810 for WOHF, and included a battle royale between Conor McNulty of ODA and Bracken Killpack of WSDA. The ultimate winner (of bragging rights and a spot on the RPS plaque) was Dr. Negar Sherkat of Seattle-King County Dental Society.

Dr. Negar Sherkat wins decisively eight years ago, when the folks from the Washington Oral Health Foundation were looking for a quick, fun way to raise a little cash at the House of Delegates, it was Ogata who suggested that a quick round of RPS might be just the ticket. $11,400 later, child's play seems like an excellent idea.
