PASA’s Annual Fundraiser — with a Twist!
A tradition for 14 years, PASA has brought a beautiful and useful collection of wares and services to the conference via our various Benefit Auctions. This activity has been rewarding to our donors, items winners, and PASA. We’d like to thank all who have contributed in your own way over the many years.
For the 2017 conference we are going to mix it up. We’re developing an exciting Raffle with a few carefully chosen spectacular prizes – including our premier item: a BCS walk-behind tractor!
The 6 other Big Raffle Packages include:
- The Vegetable Grower Package
- The Livestock Producer Package
- The Poultry Producer Package
- The Homesteader/Gardener Package
- The Locavore Package
- The Cheese & Heritage Grain Experience
The Benefit Raffle will debut on Thursday evening in Dean’s Hall and run through Saturday afternoon.
Attendees can stop by the PASA Mercantile to stock up on PASA-related gear and browse a selection of books specially selected for our agriculturally inclined audience. If you left your reusable water bottle at home, get one here! If you’re in need of a fleece to keep you warm, check out the selection!
A three-dimensional community board! The PASA community’s classified ad section is a great place to learn about new resources and stay connected with the sustainable agriculture community. Got information to share? Get it into the hands of conference attendees! Posters, fliers, magazines, catalogs, newspapers and other reading materials are all welcome. Bring your materials with you to the conference or, if you would like to send the information ahead of time, call PASA or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
Bring along your knitting needles and start your days at the conference with some creative social time. Conference knitters gather on the cozy couches by the Penn Stater fireplace on Friday and Saturday mornings. If knitting isn’t your craft of choice, please feel free to join in with your own project – sewers, chrocetters, cross stitchers and others are also welcome! Meet new friends, share yarn, patterns, tips and ideas! Supplies not provided.
