Farming for our Future Gala… Sowing the Seeds of Greatness

The Cook County Farm Bureau Board of Directors and Foundation Board have revamped the annual Membership Appreciation Banquet held each Fall into a full-blown Fundraiser with the Cook County Farm Bureau Foundation programming as the beneficiary. The funds raised will go to support the farm and food literacy efforts of the organization through ag in the classroom, college scholarships for member dependents, and our conversations with our urban friends about farm and food production.

The exclusive event will feature an open bar with appetizers, filet mignon dinner, great music and dancing featuring the Belvedere’s, a drawdown with the potential of walking away with big-bucks, a silent and live auction, and games throughout the evening.  The event will be held at the spectacular facilities at Ruffled Feathers located in the easily accessible Lemont area. Earlybird discount pricing  of $100 per person saves 20% off of regularly priced tickets. Tickets may be purchased by calling 708-354-3276 or by visiting

We encourage our members to be a part of this effort to plant seeds of agricultural literacy in our area cities and communities.
