MEMPHIS, TN --- Surrounded by a sea of sunflowers and cowboy boots, more than 400 guests helped raise over $110,000 in net proceeds for Agricenter International’s education program at the June 23rd Feast on the Farm Gala. Guests dined on a myriad of tastings from the area’s finest chefs while bidding on unique silent auction items.  The spirited live auction led by Jeff Morris of Morris Realty & Auction captivated bidders with hunting trips, diamonds, and sporting adventures.  Entertainment by the Wolf River Rednecks rounded out the fun-filled evening. 

All proceeds from the event support Agricenter International’s education program which educates 10,000 students each year.  Christine Donhardt, Event Chair, said, “This gala provides critical funding for our extensive education programs and we could not provide this without the help of generous supporters!”
