The Okmulgee FFA held its 3rd annual Okmulgee Ag Boosters Pie & Silent Auction Monday evening at Brock Gym. According to Advisor Tim Taylor, nearly $3,000 was raised to help support FFA members and the AgEd program. The event was held in person and online. Lots of thanks goes to the Ag Boosters and parents who stepped up and managed different aspects of the event including the cash-out table, the pie auction, the chili dinner and silent auction. Josh Devereaux and Devereaux Auction Company are also thanked for his time and talent to call the live pie auction. “We could not have done this event without the support of all those who donated items to both auctions, the support of Okmulgee Public Schools, and the support of everyone who came and participated in Monday night’s event. We are actively making plans for next year’s auction and hope you’ll plan to join us,” Taylor said.
