Olsen’s Grain and Feed store locations in Chino Valley, Dewey, Prescott, and Verde Valley are now selling FFA Gator Raffle Tickets. The National FFA Organization started out as the “Future Farmers of America” in 1928 in Kansas City, Mo. In 1988, the organization began doing business as The National FFA Organization to reflect the broadening field of agriculture, which today encompasses more than 300 careers in everything from agriscience to biotechnology to turf grass management.
How the FFA Gator Raffle Tickets Works
- The tickets are sold for $20 each. When they fill in their information on the raffle ticket they can write in their local FFA Chapter name and that Chapter will receive $10 of the $20 donation. The other $10 goes to the Arizona FFA Foundation that funds Arizona FFA activities at the state level. The Arizona Agricultural Education/FFA Foundation is dedicated to providing expanded educational opportunities for agricultural education and the FFA.
- Grand Prize – One random ticket will be drawn at approximately 7 pm
on January 27, 2018, and the name drawn will win a John Deere Gator valued at
$10,000 or $10,000 credit at an Arizona Stotz Equipment Store. All taxes
are the responsibility of the winner.
- Online Participation – The tickets can also be purchased online at www.FFAraffle.org. This website also gives more information about the raffle and rules.
Note: Raffle tickets are only available for purchase until January 10th.
