The AFBF Foundation for Ag’s Night Out was a rousing success. With 1,000 tickets sold and Farm Bureau members from across the country boarding the “Inspiration Hornblower,” you can guarantee a great time! A beautiful ship full of friends and fellow farmers who all care about ag literacy, it doesn’t get any better than this!
We had a great meal, amazing fellowship and great views. A few states (Nebraska, New Hampshire, Washington) even won My American Farm kiosks to enhance their ag literacy efforts while one lucky member won a trip to the Super Bowl! Thanks to our partners DuPont Pioneer and Chevy for providing these prizes.
The highlight of the night was certainly the members’ willingness to give and share their monetary blessings to help the Foundation for Ag continue to have an impact on ag Literacy! Almost $3,000 was given by our Farm Bureau family – thanks to each of you who donated!
