TWIG Events and Projects


the Memorial Tournament
The Women’s Division of the Memorial Tournament is the premier organization responsible for coordinating the thousands of volunteers who are essential to the success of this PGA golf tournament. TWIG joins other Nationwide Children’s Hospital Auxiliaries in being an integral part of the volunteer force. Since the tournament's inception in 1976, the Memorial Tournament volunteers have raised over $8 million for Nationwide Children's Hospital.

TWIG Pumpkinpalooza
Enjoy a day of family fun at the annual TWIG Pumpkinpalooza. The day includes food, hayrides, pumpkin patch, corn maze, bounce houses, games and crafts at Lynd Fruit Farm in Pataskala. Admission is free but there is a charge for the various activities. All proceeds benefit the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Nationwide Children's Hospital.

Annual TWIG Bazaar
The Annual TWIG Bazaar, benefiting Nationwide Children’s Hospital, is the largest, single-day event sponsored by TWIG. The Bazaar takes place at the Ohio Expo Center - Fairgrounds-Lausche Building. Members spend countless hours crafting both traditional and unique items that include: home décor, seasonal items, children’s collectibles and many other holiday gift ideas. Shoppers can receive an early entrance pass into the event by making a $25 donation to Children’s Hospital. For more information about the 2014 event, please contact Nationwide Children’s Hospital Foundation at (614) 355-5400.
