Mark your calendars for the 3rd Annual Chelan FFA Alumni Benefit Auction on Wednesday February 19th at 7 p.m. in the Chelan High School Commons.
This event will be held along with other National FFA Week activities of the Chelan FFA.
If FFA is something that you want to see continue to grow and prosper at Chelan High School, please consider attending the auction and supporting the FFA Alumni.
The auction will feature many quality items in both a live and silent auction, raffle ticket items, FFA members, plus cake, ice cream, punch, coffee, and a good time.
You don’t have buy anything to attend but do ask that you promise be the second place bidder at least one time.
The Chelan FFA Alumni Affiliate was founded in 1981 by a group of parents and then Chelan FFA Advisor, Walt Pierson. The strong tradition of support has been kept alive by 1981`-82 Chelan FFA President and now Chelan FFA Advisor, Rod Cool.
The Chelan FFA Alumni awards a $500 Scholarship to the individual winner of the District VII Apple Judging Career Development Event, a $500 Academic Scholarship to a graduating member of the Chelan FFA for post-secondary education in an agricultural major, and last year awarded over $17,000 in grants to Chelan FFA members to attend State and National Leadership training, Conventions, and agricultural education opportunities.
The Alumni raises money through the sale of apple gift boxes through their Novelty Apple Company, sponsoring the Lake Chelan Horticulture Day Trade Show, concessions at the Lake Chelan PWRA and Jr. Rodeos, and catering various private events throughout the year.
This year Chelan FFA membership has grown to 126 members and to maintain the current level of support to the kids, we need to expand our fundraising efforts.
The Chelan FFA Alumni is a member of the National FFA Alumni Association. The auction will be called by Best Bid Auctions. The terms will be pay on site by cash, check, or credit card.
