Colusa County Fair Foundation Hosts Golf Tournament Fundraiser

[slideshow_deploy id=’66769′]
On Friday, October 24, the Colusa County Fair Foundation held its first major fundraising event to benefit the Colusa County Fairgrounds.

“The foundation will provide financial support for the Colusa County Fair to help with maintenance, and improvements in infrastructure as many local fairs have lost funding from the state,” said board member, Hal Charter.

Colusa County Fair Foundation Hopes to Fill $180,000 Funding Gap
As part of the 2014-15 budget, the State of California has discontinued financial assistance to all county fairs, making it a significant challenge for the Colusa County Fair to continue.

“The organization was formed to help fill a $180,000 funding gap left by the state’s budget cuts,” said foundation president, Ben Carter.

Teeing off at 10:30 AM, 16 teams participated in the event.

“This is our first major fundraiser for our organization and we had a tremendous response,” said board vice president, Patty Hickel.

The foundation is seeking members and sought an opportunity to attract new members during the golf tournament.

“Initial foundation membership has exceeded our expectations, and we are extremely grateful,” said Hickel, “however, we are always looking for new members.”

As part of the foundation’s mission, the group built a small barn to house the rabbit and chicken exhibitions.

“With the growth of other livestock groups, we had to relocate the rabbit and chicken exhibitors,” said Carter, “It was necessary for us to build a new barn to continue the program.”

“The Colusa County Fair Livestock Auction plays a vital role in our community, bringing over $1 Million dollars to our youth,” Carter added, “this community is truly amazing.”

The foundation hopes to host a Valentine’s Day Ball in February as another fundraiser.

“We are still looking for sponsors for the 2015 Colusa County Fair, if anyone is interested give us a call,” said Carter.

The Colusa County Fair Foundation is a charitable organization and all donations made to the foundation are tax deductible. For more information about the foundation or to become a member call (530) 458-2641.
