AgEcon quiz bowl team to host fundraiser

April 15, 2015

The UW-River Falls AgEcon quiz bowl team is holding a fundraiser from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, April 26, at the Moose Lodge in an effort to raise money so the team can travel to San Francisco, California, this summer to compete at the national conference.

Pancakes, french toast, sausage and eggs will be served at the fundraiser. Tickets are $7 per person and $6 for senior citizens. There will also be a raffle where attendees can be entered to win several prizes, including: $100 cash, an assorted basket of Ellsworth cheeses ($60 value), a steak dinner for two at the Moose Lodge, a $20 gift certificate to the South Fork Cafe, and two $10 gift certificates to Bo's and Mine. The raffle tickets are $5 each or $20 for five.

There will also be a silent auction with several items to bid on, such as: a homemade Afghan blanket, a flower arrangement from Bo Jon's, a bowling party for six from St. Croix Lanes (valued at $70), a gift basket from Dish & Spoon (valued at $25), 10 free six-inch sub coupons from Subway, and small engine repairs from Kinni Sport and Power (valued at $55).

The UWRF AgEcon quiz bowl team members are Michael Kline, Michael Unruh, Melissa Brandes, Jacob Prill and Michelle Hoffmaster.
