ANSONIA – Each year the Ansonia FFA has an opportunity to give back to the community through its silent auction.
The 2018 FFA silent auction took place in March in conjunction with the FFA banquet. In the weeks leading up to the auction, Ansonia FFA members worked to secure donations from area businesses and organizations to auction off. Many items were donated in order to raise money for local charities and organizations.
Parents and community members who attended the banquet silently bid on the donated items. The Ansonia FFA is grateful to the community for supporting this event in such a great way. Because of their generosity, the FFA was able to raise $2,320.
