Truck giveaway celebrates Farm Bureau members’ efforts to bring people together
Buckeye Farm News
By encouraging a friend or neighbor to join Ohio Farm Bureau, more than 1,000 volunteers kicked off this year’s campaign to grow their organization and its efforts to connect Ohioans on important issues.
The volunteer campaign reflects Ohio Farm Bureau Federation's (OFBF) longstanding belief in neighbors talking to neighbors about their common problems and then working together to shape the world around them.
To continue to build on this momentum, Ohio Farm Bureau recently launched the “Every Member Sign A Member” sweepstakes.
The grand prize: A 2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, 4 Wheel Drive, Extended Cab LT pickup truck valued at nearly $33,000.
Ohio Farm Bureau members will receive an entry into the sweepstakes for each household membership they sign between June 1 and Aug. 15.
In addition to the truck, other prizes include a lifetime Farm Bureau membership, a $1,000 CD, a portable generator, a $500 gift card, an iPad and four suite tickets to an Ohio State football game.
OFBF Executive Vice President Jack Fisher said there is fun in giving away prizes, but the contest stems from the organization’s history of bringing individuals together to make great things happen.
“Every Member Sign a Member is a way for you to help yourself while helping others, a way to make your organization politically, financially and intellectually stronger,” he said. “It’s a way to reaffirm Farm Bureau’s core belief in empowering people to solve their own problems. And for a little extra motivation, a chance for you to win a truck.”
No purchase necessary to win. Only Ohio residents are eligible for this sweepstakes, other eligibility requirements do apply. Any Ohio Farm Bureau member meeting eligibility requirements may enter one entry into the contest drawing without signing a member by mailing an official entry form, available at www.ofbf.org/sweepstakes, to: Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, Attn: Every Member Sign a Member, PO Box 182383, Columbus, OH 43218. Ohio Farm Bureau members can receive one entry for each household membership they sign between June 1, 2012 and August 15, 2012 by mailing an official entry form with accompanying membership dues to the same address. All entries must be received by the OFBF office by August 15, 2012 at 4:00 PM EST.
