Raisin' for a Reason


The IAFE Education Foundation is excited to announce the return of Wagons & Whiskey during the 2021 Convention in San Antonio, Texas.  Join us in the LDR on Sunday, November 28, 2021 from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm. The evening will be the kick-off to our annual Raisin' for A Reason Auction.  We'll start by selling a key item or two live during the Wagons & Whiskey event and open the bidding on all our other great items listed on our virtual platform.  Bidding will continue the virtual platform throughout the Convention, so be sure to have your cell phone or tablet handy so you won't be outbid!  


There will be plenty of time to network with your Fair Friends and learn more about the Foundation's activities from our Board members.  You will also have an opportunity to show us how smart you are---The YPI Committee will be hosting a trivia competition that will not only be fun, but it will also help raise funds for the Foundation.  Details of the competition are still being worked out, but we promise it will be a great addition to the evening’s activities.  


Our IAFE Chair, Gene Cassidy will also be part of the evening's entertainment....You may recall that Mr. Cassidy was a nominee in our October 2020 Pie in the Face Challenge.  He was supposed to receive two pies during our Facebook Live event, however illness prevented that from happening.  Mr. Cassidy has graciously agreed to "get his pie" during the Wagons & Whiskey event.   We'll be accepting additional donations during the evening to see if we can increase the number of pies.  Don't miss this opportunity to network with your colleagues and support a great cause.  


Individual tickets to the event are $110

Reserved tables of 10 are $1500 and include table signage, a committee host who will assist you with your food and beverage needs during the evening and more!


Proceeds from ticket sales, auction purchases and games are designated for the use of funding educational speakers  and workshop presenters for the IAFE Institute of Fair Management.  


The committee is continually working on ways to enhance our fundraising efforts. Suggestions to enhance the event and our auction are welcome and encouraged.  If you'd like to provide an auction item or make a cash contribution, we're always happy to accept your donation. Feel free to use the Auction Item Donation Form 


We look forward to seeing you on Sunday, November 28, 2021, for Wagons & Whiskey!
