Dear Friends & Patrons,

The 2017 Arizona Agricultural Experience is coming March 7th, 8th & 9th. The experience is one of a kind; we will have amazing Arizona spring weather, 10,000 & 15,000 cow dairy farm tours, yogurt plant tour, special education seminars, along with special events, including our annual Welcome Reception & Dinner with the Keynote address given by Mr. Steve Keim, General Manager of the Arizona Cardinals. We will also have our “Live” auction during dinner, and much more!!

This coming year’s event location will be at Harrah’s Ak-Chin Resort & Casino including the UltraStar Multi-tainment center and Elements Event Center in Maricopa, Arizona. These venues are fantastic and we are looking forward to our continued association with the Ak-Chin Indian community.

The Pinal 40 Foundation is a non-profit organization, formed in 2014, and located in Casa Grande, Arizona. Our inaugural fund raising event, this past March, was a huge success and with the help of our 2016 Arizona Agricultural Experience sponsors, we raised over $210,000, which was given as Ag related scholarships to deserving young students, to The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Casa Grande Valley, and to various agricultural and youth oriented groups, including 4-H Clubs of America, FFA, and the Pinal County Fair.

On behalf of the entire Pinal 40 Foundation membership, we hope you will join us for the 2017 Arizona Agricultural Experience, and we look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones along the way!

— Dennis Dugan, President, The Pinal 40 Foundation
