Opportunity Builders Association of Parents (OBAP) is a group of family members and friends of individuals served by OBI that work together with the OBI staff and board of directors to enhance the vocational training services and promoting OBI’s future through its fundraising efforts.

OBAP holds meetings quarterly to plan events that benefit the individuals served at OBI both socially and financially. In recent years, OBAP has funded an outside, dual, covered grilling station in our picnic area. In addition, OBAP has made a five-year pledge to our New Foundations for OBI's Capital Campaign. See OBI's calendar for OBAP meeting dates.

OBAP Sponsored Events

  • Annual Picnic/May Fair - OBAP hosts the Annual Employee Picnic in late spring at OBI for the individuals served by OBI, their family and friends as well as for OBI staff members and their families.  It is a great opportunity to get out and meet everyone associated with OBI. The event is held in May.
  • Bull and Oyster Roast - The Bull and Oyster Roast is OBAP’s main, annual fundraiser that is held in partnership with OBI on a Saturday in November. Tickets are $50 each. It is truly a fun night full of great food with some of the best oysters you will ever eat, raffles, music and dancing.
