Last Year’s OJC Ag Gala Platinum Sponsors

 

Otero Junior College’s 7th annual Ag Gala is set for Dec. 31 and will be held in OJC’s Rizzuto Banquet Room located in the Student Center. Doors will open at 7:30 p.m. and celebrating the New Year will continue until 1:00 a.m. According to Brooke Mathew, lead instructor for the OJC Ag Program, this event not only provides the opportunity for a fun evening with friends, but also the opportunity to support scholarships for the Agricultural Science Program.

“Here at Otero Junior College, we are so grateful to have such a supportive community,” Mathew states. Last year’s Platinum Sponsors include: Farm Credit of Southern Colorado, TLC Veterinary Clinic, Wallace Oil, Colorado Vet Clinic, Waddell & Reed and The State Bank.

For six consecutive years Colorado Vet Clinic and The State Bank of La Junta have been Platinum Sponsors. Farm Credit is a five-year Platinum Sponsor of the event. Waddell and Reed Investments have been Platinum Sponsors for three consecutive years. First-time Platinum Sponsors of the 2017 Ag Gala include: TLC Vet Clinic and Wallace Oil.

“Without all of the community’s support, from the Platinum sponsors to all of the individuals that attend, we are anticipating another great year,” Mathew said. Matthew explained that the scholarship recipients will be in attendance and they look forward to meeting everyone who gave them an opportunity to continue to their educational endeavors.

This year’s event will be filled with music, dancing, food, and drinks. There will be live music played by Deuces Wild. A beef brisket dinner will be served with gourmet chocolates for dessert. Drinks will be available at a cash bar. The Ag Gala will also offer a live and silent auction.

This year’s event offers four different levels of sponsorship or individuals tickets can be purchased. For more information or to purchase tickets/sponsor the event contact Brooke Matthew at 719-384-6964 or Dillon Martin at 719-384-6821.
