Farm Credit Services Raises $1,782 “Under the Lights” at the Ray-Powers Lake Tailgate!
(Minot, ND) - Farm Credit Services (FCS) and the Ray-Powers Lake Outlaws “teamed up” for a hugely successful “Home Field Advantage” Tailgate Party. This was the first Pat-NOW tailgate held in Powers Lake and they made history playing under their new lights!
FCS set up their “tailgate” at the Powers Lake High School football field sideline on Friday, September 28, 2018. For $5.00 game-goers could purchase a hamburger or hotdog, chips and beverage. Proceeds of $1,782, are being donated to the Powers Lake High School Boosters. FCS also handed out mini footballs and t-shirts to the fans.
“It was a great night for a football game and we had an awesome time! There was an incredible turnout in Powers Lake making history under their new lights,” says Peder Colbenson, Loan Officer with Farm Credit Services of ND. “We are proud to take part in community events and donate funds that will go directly to the home team,” he adds.
Total to date, in our sixteenth year, Farm Credit Services has donated over $78,000 to designated school organizations as a result of the Pat-NOW tailgate tours.
