POSTPONED 2020 OHA Medal Breakfast

May 21 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

Due to the overwhelming concern of the spread of the COVID-19 virus, OHA is postponing any upcoming events until further notice. We will keep everyone updated as to when you can expect these events to be rescheduled.

The 2020 Onondaga Historical Association (OHA) Medal will be awarded to Syracuse University’s Special Collections Research Center, Syracuse TV anchor, Laura Hand, and the Falcone family of Pioneer Companies to recognize their outstanding and meritorious service to local history, and to the preservation and interpretation of the history of Onondaga County.

This year’s event will take place at the Grand Ballroom in the beautifully restored Marriott Syracuse Downtown (formerly the Hotel Syracuse) on Thursday, May 21st, 2020 from 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM. The OHA Medal is the highest honor that this organization can bestow upon an individual for contributions made to the cause of preserving and interpreting our heritage. Since OHA is the largest and longest standing institution in this community devoted to conserving and presenting our history, one might also consider this medal the highest tribute that can be awarded on behalf of the entire Onondaga County community to those that ensure history remains a vital part of our future.

This is only the 23rd time the OHA Medal has been awarded since its inception in 1945. The OHA Medal is a two-sided, bronze piece struck in 1894 to commemorate the centennial anniversary of the founding of Onondaga County.

Regular tickets to the OHA Medal Breakfast are $50 and Patron tickets are $125. Both can be purchased here.

Regular tables are $500, and Patron tables are $1,250 and can be purchased by calling Lisa Moore using the information below.

Information about tables, sponsorships, and program ads are available by calling Lisa Moore, Director of Development, at (315) 428-1864, ext. 315 or contacting her via email at lisa.moore@cnyhistory.org.
