Thousands of American Farm Bureau members are heading to Nashville, TN, this week for the second annual American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture online auction. The organization raises money for agricultural causes and reaped more than $32,000 last year in its first such auction.
Almost 40 state Farm Bureaus have participated this year by donating special items that will be placed up for auction via the internet. Some of the donated items include, Omaha Beef from Nebraska, a maple syrup and pancake basket from New Hampshire, citrus gift baskets from Florida, wine from California and beautiful Indian jewelry from New Mexico.
The online auction will be held at BiddingForGood.com and proceeds from the auction benefit multiple projects currently underway at the American Farm Bureau Foundation, with a mission to build awareness and understanding of agriculture through education.
The online auction runs from January 7, 2013 to January 14, 2013. Bidding will begin at 8:30 am Central Time on Jan 7 and conclude on January 14 at 5:30pm Central Time.
