Tickets for Agriculture for Life’s third annual Harvest Gala fundraiser on Nov. 8 are now on sale.
The event, held at the BMO Centre in Calgary, raises funds for educational programming on rural and farm safety, and to promote understanding and appreciation of the impact agriculture has on Albertan’s lives.
“With more and more people removed from the farm, it’s vital that we continue to share agriculture’s story,” says David Sprague, Ag for Life CEO.
“Ag for Life programs will reach 50,000 people this year, including 40,000 school-aged children through community- and curriculum-based programs. The goal is to continue to invest and reach 100,000 rural and urban Alberta children aged five to 15 in the next two years.”
Last year’s gala hosted close to 600 people from agriculture, business and government. Tickets are $250 each or $1,800 for a table of eight. Special ticket discounts are available for registered not-for-profit organizations, agricultural post-secondary students, clubs, and associations.
