College of ACES Fund Raiser


Join Todd Friday January 25th for an evening of agricultural camaraderie. We'll share a little Illinois wine, eat some great grand championship pork, hear stories from Paul Coolley, do a little Ag Outlook with Wayne Nelson, Jacquie Voeks, Steve Freed, and Gary Schnitkey, and best of all dine with Orion Samuelson. Your $100 ticket buys the meal, the show, and a signed copy of the Big O's new book! Even better, the funds raised will support the College of ACES Agricultural Communications and Hospitality Management programs; two of Todd's favorites.
