Those who win prizes won’t be met with the typical crowd chatter and expression, but the Southern Door FFA is still finding a way to hold their thirteenth wine and cheese gala On April 8. Typically the gala would bring many people together to socialize, but this year all the banter and applause will have to be done behind a screen. This year the event will be branded as a wine and cheese basket raffle, as the baskets will be comprised of prizes.
One thing that will remain usual is that the raffle will still utilize prizes from area donors and businesses. The FFA alumni don’t stray far from their roots, sticking with a showmanship themed grand and reserve prize. The grand prize is a $500 master griller package and reserve prize is a $300 jewelry piece. FFA alum Rich Olson says a bonus will be included with the over 30 total prizes that will be given away.
The gala will start at 7:00 P.M. More information can be found here.
