CAAR Pro-Ag Investments Fundraising Results

CAAR has helped raise $57,250 from the recent Pro-Ag Investment Auction, held annually to support our advocacy efforts. As our only fundraiser, the Pro-Ag auction generates critical revenue that helps keep membership fees low while allowing CAAR to partake in a wide range of industry-strengthening initiatives. Every dollar you spend goes directly to the association. Auction items were donated by companies such as Bayer, BrettYoung, Hi Tech Installations, IRM / Sherritt, and Nutrien. CAAR thanks all the people who participated in the auction, and congratulates the successful bidders. Thanks also to the auction sponsors.
