On April 4, 2019, the Idaho FFA Foundation hosted the 4th Annual Friends of the Idaho FFA Banquet at the Canyon Crest Event Center in Twin Falls, Idaho. The event, which was held in conjunction with Idaho FFA’s State Leadership Conference, was very well attended.
Amalgamated Sugar was a Supporting Sponsor of the event. “Supporting youth in agriculture is critical to Amalgamated Sugar’s success, and to Idaho’s future,” said Scott Blickenstaff, Amalgamated Sugar’s VP, General Counsel & Secretary who attended the banquet. “We are proud to participate in an event with such a worthy goal.”
The event included a “Taste of Idaho” inspired menu, special presentations from the Idaho FFA Foundation, and remarks from the Idaho FFA Foundation Chairman, Stephen Parrott. After the Chairman’s remarks, the event concluded with a live auction. Funds raised from the evening’s activities will benefit FFA members statewide by providing resources for conventions, career development events, State Officer training, and scholarships.
Idaho FFA, now in its 88th year, has over 5,100 members in 93 FFA Chapters around the state.
