Started in the 2001, the Snake River FFA dinner and auction keeps getting larger each year. Over 300 people enjoyed a free tri-tip dinner and then took part in an auction to raise funds for the Snake River FFA.
The dinner and auction is sponsored by the Snake River FFA Alumni Council.
Cory Gilbert, President of the Alumni Council said, "Our community is so great. They support these kids. It's incredible."
Vice President Delwin Bevan of the Alumni Council is retiring this year after 17 years.
"I've been here since the beginning. Former ag teacher Justin Patton introduced this idea. It's been fun."
Snake River Ag teacher J.B. Hoge said, "It's great to be the ag teacher of this community. We use to have this (the dinner and auction) in the junior high. We've probably doubled the number of people in the last nine years. It's always amazing how people support the ag part of this school."
