Be Loud With Support, Silent Auction Items Bolster Industry Future

10/21/2021

Silent Auction

Five years ago, Almond Board of California’s Almond Leadership Program participants launched a silent auction hosted at The Almond Conference to raise funds for the California FFA Foundation. Proceeds provide scholarships for graduating FFA students planning to pursue a degree in agriculture. Since 2016, this collaboration has raised nearly $150,000.  

In an ongoing effort to support the California FFA Foundation, the current Almond Leadership Program class is once again putting their support behind agricultural education and has committed to a goal of $20,000. Every dollar raised by the silent auction, up to $25,000, will be matched by Almond Conference Emerald sponsor, Qcify! 

This year’s Almond Conference is December 7-9, 2021, in Sacramento at the SAFE Credit Union Convention Center. The silent auction is held over the course of three days with different silent auction items each day. The Almond Board of California, California Future Farmers of America and Almond Leadership Program participants invite everyone in the almond industry to donate silent auction items, supporting the future of our industry.  

Interested parties can submit an item online or email Ann Friedrich or with any questions.
