Farm Credit Services Raises $1,833 at Williston Tailgate

Minot, ND - November 16th, 2017

Farm Credit Services (FCS) and the Williston Coyote’s “teamed up” for a hugely successful “Home Field Advantage” Tailgate Party.

FCS set up their “tailgate” at the Williston High School football field sideline on Friday, October 6, 2017. For $5.00 game-goers could purchase a hamburger or hotdog, chips and pop. Proceeds of $1,833, are being donated to the Williston Athletics.  FCS also tossed mini footballs and t-shirts to the fans.

“We had a great time and an incredible turnout at our tailgate event in Williston,” says David Hokanson, Branch Supervisor with Farm Credit Services in Williston. “We are proud to take part in community events and donate funds that will go directly to the school’s athletic department,” he adds.

Total to date, in our fifteenth year, Farm Credit Services has donated close to $74,000 to designated school organizations in our territory as a result of the tailgate tours.

Farm Credit Services of North Dakota proudly supports the students, families and communities in the 17 northwest counties served through branch offices in Minot, Bottineau, Carrington, Crosby, Rugby and Williston. FCS offers farm operating, equipment and real estate loans, crop insurance and a variety of financial services and products including special programs for young and beginning farmers.

The ultimate goal is to continue to provide them with a "Home Field Advantage."
