Wisconsin FFA Foundation Shares Success of Annual Golf OutingsMADISON, Wis. [August 3, 2017] – The Wisconsin FFA Foundation is excited to share the success of its annual trio of summer golf outings, and extend a huge thank you to everyone who participated in and/or sponsored these vital fundraisers.
Together, the three 2017 outings – Northwest, Northeast and Southern – raised more than $40,000 for Wisconsin FFA. Since 2010 when the Northeast (and newest) outing began, the summer events collectively have secured more than $330,000 in donated funds to support agricultural education and FFA throughout Wisconsin.
The support for Wisconsin FFA continues to be constant and substantial at these events held in Eau Claire, De Pere and Middleton. Sponsors, golfers and Ag Ed partners contribute in time, dollars and in-kind items to make each of the July outings a success year after year. The proceeds from the combined golf outings contribute significantly to the Foundation’s annual fund, a vital source of financial provision for FFA programs and leadership opportunities.
Nearly 100 businesses, agricultural organizations and individuals donated their resources this summer as hole sponsors or through in-kind items, while 220 golfers attended the annual events. A highlight was the hole-in-one made by Josh Chase, a golfer at the Northwest event in Eau Claire!
“We've been honored to host so many Ag Ed supporters and advocates at our golf outings this year, many of whom make these events an annual tradition,” says John Hromyak, Wisconsin FFA Foundation executive director. “FFA members across the state will benefit from their sponsorships and presence on the course, and we're extremely grateful to have their support.”
