The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers state committee raised more than $16,000 for the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Legal Foundation during the annual YF&R Golf Classic, May 16.
The 12th annual event was held at Choctaw Creek Golf Course where 23 teams competed in a four-man scramble. The golf classic is the largest fundraiser organized for the OKFB Legal Foundation and all proceeds benefit the foundation’s efforts to protect the rights of farmers and ranchers and represent them regarding agricultural issues.
“We appreciate the continued support from the YF&R and those who participate in the tournament,” OFBLF Director LeeAnna McNally said. “The OKFB Legal Foundation was established to protect private property rights and production agriculture. The funds we receive from the tournament each year help us grow this important mission.”
Team results include first place – Kenny Heckart, JC Dunigan and Lee McLaurine from Woodward County; second place – John Wiscaver, Larry Brown, Jeff Chamblin and Tim Cochran from Oklahoma Farm Bureau Insurance; third place – Adam Martens, Todd McQue, Todd Gilcrest and Chad Nightengale from Wiggins Auctioneers.
