Reverse Raffle Event helps create Agriculture Impact Fund

Logan County Farm Bureau is excited to share its success from the first Logan County Agriculture Impact Fund Reverse Raffle which was held April 7, 2018. This project was designed to support and help enrich the agriculture impact on our county’s youth.

What an evening we had! In its first year, the county could not be more excited about how well the raffle went and the tremendous support we received from the community. The reverse raffle raised over $24,000 to establish the Logan County Agriculture Impact Fund. From the fund, grant opportunities will be available to organizations, clubs and groups that work in agriculture and youth development on new and innovative ways to grow agriculture’s footprint and expand youth involvement in agriculture initiatives in our county.

Attendees who purchased a reverse raffle ticket were entered to be eligible to win the grand prize draw of $5,000! Other ticket draws included a runner-up prize of $2,000, a third-place draw of $1,000, loser’s draw of $500, along with various other intermittent draws. Additionally, attendees took part in a live auction, lucky bucket drawing, 50/50 drawing, punch board and insurance board games. The live auction featured great items and experiences that were donated by many local businesses and featured the sale of the 300th ticket!

We would like to thank our wonderful sponsors who are listed below. Without their support and that of those who purchased tickets, the success of the event could have been possible.
