Farmers Formal 2012

A big thank you to all of the generous supporters who came out to celebrate EarthDance Saturday night at our 5th annual fundraiser, Farmers Formal.

We’re proud to announce that in addition to the event being SOLD OUT a week in advance, we exceeded our fundraising goal. Thanks to everyone who attended, bid on live and silent auction items, contributed to our Fund-a-Future-Farmer appeal, and to all of our generous sponsors, we raised a gross of $63,457! These funds will go a long way in helping to fund future farmers, and make the future vision for the farm a reality.

EarthDance has a bright future ahead. Please take a moment to watch the video that was made about EarthDance and shown at Farmers Formal Saturday, narrated by our special guest Anna Lappe.

The night wouldn’t have been a success without the hard work of our outstanding planning committee:

Lindsay Brinton, Mandy Brooks, Jill Duncan, Sonja Farmer, Katrina Gillespie, Julie Holley, Faith LaBeaume, Laura Lamorette, Suzanne Modesto, Amy Rhodes, Courtney Rockamann, Kathy Rockamann, Molly Rockamann, Molly Ross, Moira Ross, and Jennifer Schaefer

Also, many thanks to our host committee for helping us to make this a SOLD OUT event!

And special thanks goes out to our Emcee, Wayne Prichard of Chipotle; Special Guest Speaker, Anna Lappé; Auctioneer, Bob Smith; Auctioneer Assistant, Joe Mantoan; and our musicians Willow Creek and Miss Jubilee & the Humdingers.
