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

On Tuesday, April 12, 48 people took part in the new twist on the ABEF Golf Outing. It was a perfect day at Topgolf, in Overland Park, where attendees enjoyed cocktails and appetizers while they hit micro chipped golf balls to marked targets on the green. Check out some photos of the fun!

ABEF continued the “Sensational Six” fundraiser this year which tied into the NAMA Student Marketing Competition. This competition allowed participates to guess the winner of the student competition for a chance to win a Visa gift card! The big winner was Jane Griswold, Hoard’s Dairyman, who correctly guessed that the University of Wisconsin – Madison would be the big winner at this year’s competition. The Student Marketing Competition Finals Presentations will be posted on the NAMA YouTube page soon, check back often to get a look at the winning presentations.

The 2016 Century Club sign up was another big fundraiser put on by ABEF. By the end of the conference, there were 84 names on the list! Out of those names, Matt Meyers, Agri-View, 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 2016 Century Club List.

And finally, ABEF had HUGE success with the ABEF Silent Auction. With over 60 donations, attendees had a wide variety of items to bid on. This year was one of the most profitable years for this fundraiser, with over $7,500 raised for the Student NAMA Careers Program! Thanks to everyone who bid.
