We are less than a 2 weeks away from the kick off of the 2021 Draw Down. This year the event will start on March 12th when we open our Virtual Silent Auction and will end on March 27th with the virtual drawing of our Draw Down tickets. There are so many ways to join in the fun and support some great programs!
Draw Down tickets are currently available for purchase at the Kendall-Grundy Farm Bureau office. Tickets are $35 and enter you for the chance to win up to $1500. Tickets are drawn in a reverse raffle format with cash prizes being awarded throughout the drawing. Join us at 5pm on March 27th via Zoom or Facebook Live as we draw our winners. Links will be made available at kendallgrundyfb.com/drawdown.
This year we are also raffling off a 23 Gun Safe. Tickets are $10 each. The winner will be drawn during the livestream.
Virtual Silent Auction
Our silent auction will take place virtually this year. With the help of Richard Olson and Associates, our auction website will go live on March 12th and close at 3pm on March 27th. Bidders will create an account on the website and then place their bid. Winning items can be picked up at the Farm Bureau office starting on March 29th.
On the silent auction there will be 10 toy tractors up for bid. The names of the winners of these 10 tractors will then be drawn to win a larger price. This year the winner of our tractor auction will take home a Gas Fire Pit, a $700 value. The winner will be drawn during the livestream.

I speak both for Farm Bureau and Friends of Extension when I say Thank You for all of your generosity and support throughout the years, but especially in 2020 and 2021 as our plans have had to change. Please help us spread the word and make this year a true success! Visit the Farm Bureau Facebook Page or our Website for information to share.
