According to CFFA President Christian Thurwanger (Sycamore, IL), a junior ag major, the above-listed schedule is tentative.

"We will give those who order a courtesy call if we are running early or if we are running behind schedule," he said.

For orders that have special time constraints, contact Thurwanger at C-Thurwanger@wiu.edu. For office orders, CFFA is asking each office or department to delegate one person to collect money for the delivery person. Tickets can also be purchased in advance by contacting Riedle at KJ-Riedle@wiu.edu.

"The origins of the fundraiser started back during the FFA Week, which is normally the last week in February. Our club started this to show our passion for the organization (the national FFA organization) that has given so much to us. We also used this as a time to educate those about our events that we host on campus. We wanted to show everyone who came in to this event and donated money what their dollars went to," Thurwanger noted. "Some of the common events this money goes toward is our Greenhand Conference for freshmen and sophomores in FFA. The money also goes toward the state FFA career development events that are hosted on campus at Western."
