44th Annual Ag Boosters BBQ
For 43 years the Ag Boosters BBQ has helped raise over $1 million to
support the Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology at
Fresno State and California Women for Agriculture (CWA). Every year thanks to many generous and loyal supporters like you, Ag One and CWA have been able to help deserving students attain their college education (Ag One) and advocate for agriculture to our elected officials (CWA). We are grateful to the agricultural community who have stood with us to ensure there are well educated leaders today and in the future.
As we plan for the 44th Annual Ag Boosters BBQ, COVID-19 restrictions
are being lifted. The committee is hopeful we will be able to gather
with one another to enjoy good food and camaraderie amongst our friends
and colleagues on September 12, 2021. However, we realize there is
uncertainty in our planning and the BBQ could be “dinnerless” and virtual
for another year.
As we move forward with planning, we ask you to consider a sponsorship whether the
BBQ is in person or not. We hope you will join the sponsors that have already committed
their support. Please see the sponsorship levels below and join the early sponsors
and support the 44th Annual Ag Boosters BBQ.
Fresno State is a special place to train the future leaders in agriculture. CWA is hard at work advocating on behalf of all of agriculture. These things don’t happen without you.
We appreciate your continued support and look forward to thanking you in person. Please do not hesitate to reach out to any of the committee members if you have questions
