Call it a success; call it a job well-done; but above all call it a great time had by all.
The Kentucky FFA Association, a student-led organization centered around agricultural education and career development, held its 2021 Blue & Gold Gala on September 18, 2021 in Bowling Green, raising $132,500 via its raffle to be used to benefit its members.
Each ticket purchased at the event will be used to provide funding for an FFA jacket for a member who might otherwise not be able to afford one—so thank-you one and all for your kind generosity.
Monies were raised via a raffle for the chance to win a singular grand prize—a John Deere Gator XUV590M cross-over utility vehicle, won by the very happy active FFA Alumni volunteer Ashley Parsons of Johnson County.
Valued at just under $13,000 for a base vehicle, the four-wheel independent suspension Gator XUV590M was donated to the Kentucky FFA by Wright Implement, a John Deere-certified dealer with 15 locations spread across Kentucky and Indiana.
Established in 1936, Wright Implement provides high-quality products and service to the farming, commercial, residential and construction communities. For more information, visit: www.wrightimp.com.
