The 2nd Annual Crop Hop will take place on Sunday, October 19, 2014 from 6-10 p.m. at The Haw River Ballroom in Saxapahaw, NC.
100% of the proceeds from the event will benefit RAFI’s Farm Sustainability program and our work on behalf of family farmers. The link for tickets is coming soon!
This year, the Crop Hop promises to provide even more fun and entertainment for all. Like last year, the event will feature live music, square dancing & performances, a live auction, as well as locally sourced light hors d’oeuvres and micro-brews.
New this year is the addition of a “tricky tray”, also known as a “penny social” or “pick-a-prize”. A “tricky tray” auction is a combination of a traditional raffle and silent auction where guests purchase raffle tickets and place the tickets in canisters near the items they hope to win.
The format allows guests to focus on just those prizes they want to win and provides donating business an opportunity to advertise their products and services in a more engaging manner.
To submit a donation for inclusion in the Crop Hop’s fundraising event, or to inquire about sponsorship opportunities or group tickets please contact Amanda Bravo at [email protected]
Tickets will go on sale on September 3, 2014, In the meantime, be sure to RSVP and invite your local friends and family via Facebook.
