The 2017 FFA/4H Benefit Dinner and auction is history. Calculators were buzzing and checks were stacking up at the end of the evening to tally and collect all of the money for the SOLD BIDS for more than 50 items. The final count isn’t in, but looks like the evening’s efforts brought in about $15,000 – money directly for the students and ag programs.
Luther turns out to support its agriculture students.
The Thunder-Lakers tickets went for $625, some of the metal furnishings brought three-figures, and livestock trophies went for a few hundred dollars to support students who participate in show season. There were baked goods galore, hand-crafted items, a custom duck blind, a hog showing bucket of goodies and plenty of good-natured running up of the bids.
Word is auctioneer extraordinaire Dennis Delano, who’ll get you to bid even when you think you’re broke, had a Personal Record tonight, surpassing a half-million dollars for all of the auctions he’s called in his career. Big night.
Enjoy a few pictures from the evening.
