Donation for benefit auction at the Salute to Century Farms
Any business with rural or agricultural roots and customers, is encouraged to donate an item or gift card for Greene County Extension to sell at a fall live benefit auction. The auction will provide funds for Greene County Extension’s educational programs during the year and will help us reach over 40,000 county residents with quality Extension training this year.
We will have at least 100 to 150 people at our auction which will be held as part of Greene County Extension’s third annual “Salute to Century Farms” event from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 26, 2016 at the Round Barn Event Center along Clear Creek between Willard and Ash Grove, Mo. We have a great evening of entertainment and education planned.
We will also be honoring four farms in Greene County with Century Farm status. That means this productive farms have stayed operational and in the same family for over 100 years!
All donations for the auction will be appreciated. Gift cards, gift certificates for services, actual items should sell well. If you would like me or one of our council volunteers to come to your business and pick up a donation, please contact me by telephone or by email.
Donations are needed prior to Sept. 20.
