AFR Boasts Record Attendance at Annual Golf Tournament, Generates Thousands for Charity Show

Fri, 22 Jun 2018 12:27:02 CDT

AFR Boasts Record Attendance at Annual Golf Tournament, Generates Thousands for Charity Show The American Farmers & Ranchers hosted a charity golf tournament Thursday, June 21 at the FireLake Golf Course in Shawnee, Okla., on behalf of the Farmers Union Foundation, Inc. The event, in its third year, saw a record number in both attendance and fundraising. Early reports from AFR staff pegged total participation at approximately 120 people, who collectively raised well over estimates of $10,000.

The funding raised at this even will go towards the organization’s inaugural Gold Star Classic Special Needs Livestock Show. This event will be held during the last week of August, Thursday the 30th at the Grady County Fairgrounds in Chickasha, during which AFR invites youth with special needs to participate in the show where they will have the chance to interact with donated show stock and local 4-H and FFA student volunteers.


"We are excited to raise funds to provide special needs students with this unique opportunity outside of the classroom," said Terry Detrick, president of the Farmers Union Foundation. "Our golf tournaments have always focused on helping improve lives and we believe this event meets that goal."

Detrick told Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Associate Farm Director Carson Horn, who participated in this week’s tournament, representing the Network as a Silver Sponsor of the event, that AFR has always been committed to supporting local youth activities. He says that with all the negativity and pessimism that exists in the ag industry today, this event will serve as a way to reach out to our state’s rural communities and give participants a chance to enjoy a time of fellowship and cooperation and help inspire our young people.
