The Chairman’s Ball is an exciting Las Vegas-style evening with all the glitz and glamour you would expect from the famous city. The Seneca Diabetes Foundation uses the Ball in combination with the Golf Classic to support crucial Seneca Nation Health Department programs, fund our scholarship program to young Senecas studying toward a career in healthcare and the $1.5 million Seneca Diabetes Foundation Endowment Fund at Oishei Children’s Hospital.

The Seneca Diabetes Foundation has been fortunate to have such strong supporters to walk with us on our journey.

To honor those committed to our cause, we’re pleased to present the Barry and Deanna Snyder Chairman’s Award. Each year, SDF will present this to an individual or organization that has given generously to our mission. A unique crystal sculpture has been commissioned for this honor.

The hawk, representing Snyder’s ancestral clan, and the five bound arrows are a symbol of the strength of the five tribes of the People of the Longhouse. Alone, one arrow can easily be broken, but when bound together in harmony, they remain strong.

SDF’s relationship with Dr. Cropp and Independent Health is like the arrows – working as one to create a foundation for generations of healthy families.
