ABEF Success at 2015 AMC

Written by NAMA on Friday, April 24, 2015 , 12:24 pm

The Agri-Business Educational Foundation (ABEF) had great success with three fundraising opportunities at this year’s Agri-Marketing Conference.

On Tuesday, April 14; 40 golfers hit the green at The Deuce at the National Golf Course. It was a perfect day for a golf outing. The golfers enjoyed lunch before their golf games and rounded up the day with a reception and award ceremony for the winning teams. Check out some photos of the fun!

Golf Outing Winners:

1st Place: Bob Brunker, Brittany Hanson & Colin Pennington.

2nd Place: Patrick Gottsch, Jonnie Rodgers, Tim Mullan & Michael LaBroad.

3rd Place: Matt Herman, Ted Haller, Brad Roberts & Adam Marcshel.

Closest to the Pin Competition Winners:

Men’s Winner: Patrick Gottsch

Women’s Winner: Jan Johnson

ABEF launched a new fundraiser this year that tied into the NAMA Student Marketing Competition. The “Sensational Six” competition allowed participates to guess the winner of the student competition for a chance to win a $500 Visa gift card! The big winner was Steve Tomac, John Deere, who correctly guessed that Cal Poly – San Luis Obispo would be the big winner at this year’s competition. Check out the Student Marketing Competition Finals Presentations on the NAMA YouTube page.

The ABEF Silent Auction also had great success this year. With about 45 donations, attendees had a wide variety of items to bid on. The final amount made on the auction is still being compiled, but it was definitely a success.

And finally, ABEF had HUGE success with the 2015 Century Club sign up. Before the start of conference, only 40 people had donated the $100 to be a part of Century Club. But by the end, ABEF had 105 names on the list! Out of those 105 names, Amy Bugg, Verdesian Life Sciences, was the big winner of this year’s Wall of Wine! Thanks to everyone who donated, ABEF is very excited for the fundraising success and to give back to the future of agri-business. Click here to see the 2015 Century Club List.
