Make your reservation today, and plan to join us for an evening of fun, food and giving at the 2017 Fairfield County 4-H Legacy Dinner and Auction! This year’s event is being held at the Grube Farm on Thursday, June 22, and tickets are now on sale.
The Fairfield County 4-H Youth Development program strives to teach leadership, citizenship and life skills to nearly 1,270 4-H club members each year. While most of these young people participate in the traditional 4-H club experiences, children who are not yet 4-H age can participate in a non-competing, activity based curriculum known as the Cloverbud program. Nearly 1000 additional youth are exposed to 4-H work through school enrichment programs. In addition, the 4-H Youth Development program also offers training and leadership opportunities for more than 200 4-H advisors in our County.
While dollars to support the 4-H Youth Development program are received cooperatively through Federal, State and County funding, several years ago friends and former 4-Hers met to begin what is now known as the Fairfield County 4-H Endowment. The mission of this Endowment and the Board who manage it is to raise awareness and dollars for long term investment in the 4-H program. Their hope is to leave a Legacy for 4-Hers for generations to come by generating enough funding over time to endow a 4-H position in Fairfield County.
The major annual activity of the 4-H Endowment Board is the Legacy Dinner and Auction which will be held this year on Thursday, June 22, 2017 at the farm home of Karl & Judy Grube and Family, located at 1225 Canal Road NE, northeast of Baltimore. The evening will begin with cheese and wine tasting, and the auction preview at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7:00. The entire evening is dedicated to the benefit of the Fairfield County 4-H Endowment when you will enjoy great food, fellowship with other supporters of our County’s 4-H program, and perhaps most importantly, lots of fun!
You are invited to help leave a legacy by simply attending, and/or by becoming one of the contributing sponsors for the evening. There are actually four different ways for you to consider becoming involved and supporting the effort of the Fairfield County 4-H Endowment.
First, for $40 you can attend and simply enjoy a great meal!
Second, for $400 you may purchase a table for 8 to attend the Dinner and Auction and share the table with your business colleagues or friends.
A third alternative for participation is a donation for either the silent or live Legacy Auction that is held during the Legacy Dinner. Examples of suggested items that are appreciated for these auctions include themed gift baskets, event tickets, autographed memorabilia, gift certificates, jewelry, photography, art work, baked goods and sweet treats, or any items that represent 4-H and youth. You may also find a listing of few items already included in the Auctions on the Legacy Auction page.
If you would like to offer your support by simply become a contributing sponsor of the event, there are multiple levels of support available ranging from donations and/or sponsorships of from $100 to $1500+.
Regardless of the extent you choose to participate, we do hope you will come and share in an evening of food, fellowship and fun in support of the Fairfield County 4-H Endowment Dinner and Auction.
