On Saturday, March 25, the 14th annual Florida FFA Foundation Beast Feast will be held at the Florida FFA Leadership Training Center near Haines City.
The menu may include venison, pork, gator, shrimp, turkey, conch salad, oyster stew, swamp cabbage, low country boil, peanuts, homemade ice cream, desserts and many other foods. All the meals are prepared by Florida FFA chapter members.
The fundraising event consists of several exciting opportunities for participants. Silent and live auctions are open for attendees to bid on hunting, fishing and vacation trips, and much more. Activities also include raffles, live music, a dunk tank and the famous “cow chip bingo.”
New this year is the inaugural Future Farmer Classic. This sporting clay shoot event will begin with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m., and participants will be given complimentary admission to the Beast Feast (immediately following the shoot, beginning at 11 a.m.). Registration for the shoot begins at $125 per individual shooter and $450 for a team of four shooters.
Michael Rogalsky, executive director of the Florida FFA Foundation, said, “We have two sporting clay courses on the north end of our facility, with a total of 23 stations. We are inviting all FFA members, alumni, parents and community members to come out and participate in the charity shoot.”
All of the money raised from the event goes to the Florida FFA Foundation and Leadership Training Center. “Funds are used to further enhance the program that we have for the students and FFA around the state of Florida as well as the upkeep and maintenance for the Leadership Training Center,” said Rogalsky.
