The live auction raised $17205.00 A Big Shout out goes to: Fraser Auction Services (Scott & Jesse Campbell), Bill Klassen Auction Ltd. (Bill & Karen Klassen) and Ritchie Bros.

Thank you to everyone who purchased 50/50 tickets.  The 50/50 tickets raised $505.  The winner of the 50/50 was Trevor Scherman and he donated $260.00 of his winnings back to AITC-MB.

Some of the prizes were reauctioned by the winners and this raised an additional $425.00

This year we decided to make Agriculture in the Classroom – Manitoba our recipient of the social profits because of our Theme of “Tell Your Story – Be An Agvocate” We still have to figure out all of the logistics but we are very proud to announce that Manitoba Ag Days will be presenting AITC-M with $28,055 from all of the social prizes that were donated by our exhibitors and friends. We would like to thank AITC-M for all of their work packaging and preparing the social prizes; it was a huge task and we are grateful for their help. 

On behalf of the Management and Board of Manitoba Ag Days we would like to say thank you to our incredible industry!
