Golf Outings

Thank you!

The Foundation’s trio of 2018 outings raised nearly $40,500 to support Wisconsin FFA and agricultural education. These summer events have collectively yielded more than $370,000 in donated funds since 2010, when the newest outing of the three was first held in northeastern Wisconsin. Proceeds from all of the golf outings significantly aid the Foundation’s annual fund, an essential account which maintains operations of the organization, as well as supplements the needs of Wisconsin FFA throughout the year.

"We're grateful to our sponsors and golfers who make these events an annual tradition in support of Ag Ed and FFA," says John Hromyak, Wisconsin FFA Foundation executive director. "More than just a fundraiser, we see our golf outings as a way to connect face-to-face with our community of individual supporters and an opportunity to strengthen our relationship with industry sponsors. We hope to continue to see growth and invite all to next year's outings!"
