As of Tuesday, May 10, 2016
The Hood River Valley Future Farmers of America (FFA) Chapter is gearing up for its ninth annual Steak Feed and Silent Auction, “Denim & Diamonds,” held in the Hood River Valley High School Cafeteria and Commons on Saturday, May 14 starting at 6 p.m. The dinner includes grilled tri tip, baked potato, salad, dinner roll, and a beverage. In addition, the $10 ticket gives you the opportunity to bid on items that have been donated from throughout the Columbia Gorge.
This year’s auction will include more than 300 products, certificates, goods and services donated by businesses of the Gorge community. New to the event this year will be live entertainment, child care, a photo booth, door prizes, and a giant basket raffle.
“The list of business and vendors that donate to this auction is long, and shows the great support the community has for the FFA members as they raise funds for the coming year,” said FFA Advisor Don Schmidt.
The proceeds from this auction help to offset the costs of leadership camps, conventions, scholarships, and school farm operation.
The Hood River Valley FFA Chapter would like to invite everyone to the Steak Feed and Silent Auction. Tickets can be purchased from, Hood River Valley High School, any FFA Member, or by contacting Schmidt or Nita Bozarth at the high school, 541-386-4500.
