2021 Sorghum PAC Series Breaks Fundraising Record

Wed, 07 Jul 2021 16:35:29 CDT

2021 Sorghum PAC Series Breaks Fundraising Record The National Sorghum Producers’ (NSP) 2021 Sorghum PAC Series generated a record-breaking $133,000 for the Sorghum PAC. Sorghum Partners was the premiere event sponsor, and the series included three rounds of fundraisers that took place throughout the spring, including two online auctions and an inaugural golf tournament.

“We are thrilled by the success of the 2021 Sorghum PAC Series,” NSP Industry Relations Director Jamaca Battin said. “In such an uncertain year, we are especially grateful for our members and sponsors who generously contributed their time and financial support to make these events and the success we had possible.”

The keystone event was the inaugural Sorghum PAC Golf Tournament, which took place at the Wellington Golf Club in Wellington, Kansas.

NSP is pleased to announce the winners of the tournament. Prizes were awarded to teams first through third in three flights. In the Champion Flight, the first place team included David Meyers, Corey Swindler, Eric Fahnstock and Denver Harris, and the second place team was Ben Heasty, Jeremy Zehr, Tyler Norris and Toby Ruder. In the A Flight, the first place team was Mark Johnson, Cole Miller, Michael Fullmer and Troy Scarlett, and the second place team included Clint Lawrence, Brady Lawrence, Steve Anderson and Richard Clift. In the B Flight, the first place team included Greg Turek, Dylin Volavka, Hunter Stuewe and Alec Webster, and the second place team was Jared Brown, Alan Campbell, Joel Leftwich and Bob Leftwich. Photos of the winning teams and other photos from the event can be found at SorghumGrowers.com.

“I am really pleased at the success of our golf tournament,” NSP Vice Chairman Craig Meeker said. “Not only did we raise significant financial resources for NSP to continue to provide the highest-quality advocacy on behalf of sorghum farmers and our industry, but we were also able to bring together farmers, industry partners, state affiliates and staff for competitive fun and fellowship in the name of sorghum. I look forward to continuing this new tradition and building on the tremendous success we saw this year.”

The series also included two online auctions, one hosted through BigIron Auctions, and an additional online event that included exclusive commentary from sorghum representative and Combest Sell & Associates principal Tom Sell, former House Agriculture Committee Chairman Collin Peterson and NSP CEO Tim Lust.

“It is exciting to see the continual growth of the Sorghum PAC,” Sorghum PAC Chairman Shane Ohlde said. “Through innovative and adaptive new events, generous donations from farmers and the new and continued support of our industry partners and sponsors, we are growing the Sorghum PAC and NSP’s ability to promote sound farm policy on Capitol Hill.”
