On April 6th, 2017 at 7 pm in the Vinton-Shellsburg high school gym, we held our annual labor auction. There were 33 FFA members & 2 Advisors that participated in this fundraiser. Joel Schmitz was our auctioneer this year due to Duane Johnson having other commitments. There were a total of 9 freshmen, 11 sophomores, 8 juniors, 6 seniors, and 2 advisors. The subtotals for each grade were: freshman $1,270, sophomore $2,690, juniors $1,860, seniors $1,900, and advisors $410. Average price per member was $185.74.

All together we raised a total of $8,730.00 from this amazing fundraiser. Congrats to all that participated and got purchased. Also, thank you to all of our FFA supporters that come out and participate in this fundraising event to help our chapter be successful. We greatly appreciate it!
