In lieu of its annual spring fundraiser dinner, Exeter Ag Boosters is offering a handgun and CCW class raffle. Tickets are $10 each and available by contacting President Lisa McEwen via email at [email protected], or mailing payment to Exeter Ag Boosters, P.O. Box 31, Exeter, CA 93221. The winning ticket will be drawn on Friday, April 9, 2021.
With the help of a longtime supporter, Extreme Shooting Sports in Exeter, the group has selected a Smith & Wesson .40 Shield handgun to raffle, as ammunition is easier to acquire. In addition, Eddie Reynoso of California Concealed Carry and Devon Stout of Exeter Gunslingers are teaming up to offer the CCW class to the lucky winner.
All proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit the Exeter FFA chapter, and is just one example of how the booster group has continued to offer financial and material support to the ag students at Exeter Union High School.
Some accomplishments this year include:
- Providing an Exeter FFA Chapter T-shirt for every agriculture student, passed out during drive-thru FFA Degree Ceremonies at the school farm.
- Purchasing 10 FFA Jackets to be kept at the farm and loaned to students who need one for future events.
- Awarding $3,000 in scholarships to deserving seniors in May.
- Connecting with the My Job Depends on Ag organization to provide a $500 scholarship to a Class of 2021 Exeter High senior on MJDOA’s behalf.
In addition, the Exeter Ag Boosters group is looking ahead to the return of its annual dinner, which is always a fun evening for a great cause.
The Ag Boosters suggests mark your calendars and plan to join them on Saturday, April 2, 2022 at Country M Ranch in Tulare. Check their Facebook page for updates or their website: https://exeterffa.wixsite.com/agriculture/ag-boosters.
