A big crowd and long lines at the silent auction mean a lot of money was raised for Southern Door FFA college scholarships on Friday night. The Southern Door FFA hosted a wine and cheese gala at Mr. G’s in Jacksonport. Around 300 people came to the event at $25 per ticket. The lines for the silent auction were long meaning even more money went towards scholarships. It was the 13th annual Southern Door FFA Wine and Cheese Gala. Rich Olson was at the very first one and is now the President of the Southern Door FFA Alumni. He says the event has grown a lot in the last 13 years.
The 14th annual Southern Door FFA Wine and Cheese Gala is already scheduled for next year, also at Mr. G’s.
