Foundation News – State Annual Meeting Foundation Highlights … an opportunity to shop and support!

Hello agricultural education supporters!  We are getting geared up for the 2018 Foundation Silent and Live Auction, which will be held during the New York Farm Bureau State Annual Meeting in Syracuse, on Dec. 4-6.

 

There will be raffle tickets and everyone who participates is a winner, plus the potential to win the grand prize.  We will be holding a New York State Beverage Grab!  For a $20 donation, you choose a wrapped bottle of New York’s finest and it is yours.  Your choice could be of any variety at any level of value, but everyone will be a winner.  For the usual cost of a pack of raffle tickets you are a guaranteed winner. Then all raffle players have their tickets entered for the grand prize.  Last year one lucky individual took home five bottles for the price of one raffle ticket!

 

The 2018 raffle is again sponsored by D.A. Collins Companies, a community-minded, diverse company that is intensely involved in many aspects of the infrastructure of agriculture.  Their professionalism and positive company attitude linked with their innovation, advanced technology and experience has had a very positive impact that the agricultural community has enjoyed.  The commitment of D.A. Collins to community and agriculture is certainly expressed through their continuing support and appreciated by all who are the beneficiaries of the Foundation programs.

 

The success of past auctions has always relied on the great quality of the items we were able to provide thanks to you.  We are once again requesting your assistance in the outreach efforts to acquire donations for this event.  If you would like to donate or solicit an item, please let us know what items will be brought to the event so that we have can build our catalog and provide a diverse and interesting assortment.

 

Also, feel free to approach any businesses or professional services you feel might be interested in participating in this year’s auction. Please note that we are requesting that all items have a minimum value of $25.00, as we want to maintain the level of excellence you have set.

 

Here are some important factors to remember: Since the Foundation is a 501 C (3) corporation, all contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law (make sure you share this information with any prospective contributors). All contributions will be recognized in the Auction Catalog and on the tables of the Silent Auction, unless they specifically ask to remain anonymous.  And finally, alcoholic beverages cannot be a part of the auction.  Popular alternatives are gift certificates from wineries or breweries, which are perfectly acceptable for us to auction.  We have donation forms available or simply let us know the donor, item and value so that the catalog is complete.  We are also seeking items for our LIVE AUCTION…  give us a call and let us know what you might have in mind.

 

Our live auction format will also have a website information display!  We will be providing early information on our listing of live auction items to allow those who cannot attend to place a bid with us prior to the event.  Also, we are seeking a variety of special items for which you may be able to provide a contact.  If you have an idea or someone we can contact, please let us know.

 

We appreciate your help. If anyone has any questions about the Silent Auction, please contact Sandie Prokop at sprokop@nyfb.org or 518-431-5633.
