Colorado Pork Producers present a Taste of Elegance: a fund raising effort for the Colorado FFA Foundation



The Colorado Pork Producers Association are sponsoring a fund raiser for the Colorado FFA Foundation in Greeley on April 30 at the Art Guttersen, St. Michaels Reservoir lake house. The evening begins at 6:30 pm.


The event, A Taste of Elegance, will feature a 6 course pork tasting menu and sampling of Colorado wine and beer.  The pork dishes will be prepared by chef members of the Colorado Association of Chef’s and will feature a pork tasting contest with winners being determined the night of the event and judged by event attendees.


“The Colorado FFA Foundation is a great organization and one with which we know has a lot of support and appreciation from many people throughout the state of Colorado” states Joyce Kelly, Executive Director, Colorado Pork Producers Council.  “We want to help promote the great partnership of youth and pork that has grown at a fantastic rate all over this great state.  We also believe that there are very few youth development programs that has the lasting impact on young lives as does the FFA program.  It’s a privilege to be able to help them in any way we can.”


Kelly further stated, “we have worked with the Colorado Chef’s Association on many events in the past and feel very fortunate to have their membership support and help to make this event possible.  We are looking to have some outstanding pork dishes to choose from at this event.”


All of Colorado FFA supporters are encouraged to buy a ticket to this event even if they cannot attend.  The Colorado FFA Foundation will find FFA members who are in the area for the state FFA contests that weekend to attend and enjoy the evening.  All ticket purchases are eligible for a tax deduction.
