Columbus — Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, Director of Health Doctor Amy Acton and Interpreter Marla Berkowitz have become household names through their daily press briefings revolving around the coronavirus pandemic in Ohio.
Now, you can have your very own seven inch bobblehead of Gov. DeWine, Dr. Acton and Marla Berkowitz from The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum.
The hall of fame first revealed Governor DeWine’s bobble head along with California Governor Gavin Newsom, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers.
“During these unprecedented times, we want to continue to raise funds for an amazing cause while putting a smile on people’s faces with bobbleheads,” National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar said. “We received a lot of requests to make bobbleheads of these four governors who have been instrumental in the continued fight against COVID-19, so we’re excited to be unveiling these bobbleheads today.”
The hall of fame received many requests for a Dr. Acton and Marla Berkowitz bobblehead after the unveiling of Gov. DeWine’s last month.
“Bobbleheads are the ultimate honor, and we think Dr. Acton deserves it given what she has done and continues to do for the state of Ohio and the country,” said Sklar.
Every purchase of a Gov. DeWine and Dr. Acton bobblehead will give $5 to the American Hospital Association’s Protect the Heroes Campaign, according to the hall of fame’s website.
For every Marla Berkowtiz bobblehead sold, $5 will go to Columbus Colony Elderly Care to purchase clear masks to allow the lips to be visible.
"We think Marla Berkowitz deserves it given the unheralded work she has done and continues to do for the deaf and hard-of-hearing people in Ohio during the battle against COVID-19,” Sklar said.
The bobbleheads cost $25 each and can be pre-ordered from The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum’s website.
