(Thoughts? Submit a letter to the editor here.)

Licciardello Farms, at 1800 SE 160th Street in Summerfield, recently hosted the Giving Gala, a charitable holiday party benefiting The Landon Yerk Memorial Foundation. Licciardello Farms was a spectacular sight to see, decorated for the holiday season. The crowd came to the Giving Gala ready to do just that. The Giving Gala had a three tier raffle along with a live auction, drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Some of the most popular items were a large gun safe, a variety of designer purses, and hunt packages that included bird hunts, Turkey hunts and hog hunts. The Giving Gala at Licciardello Farms raised approximately $75,000.00 for the Landon Yerk Memorial Foundation!

The Giving Gala is an annual event that gives back to a Marion County based 501(c)3 on a two year cycle. In 2020 and 2021 Licciardello Farm gave back to The Rock Program. In 2022 the farm gave back to the Landon Yerk Memorial Foundation, and 2023 did as well. The Landon Yerk Foundation’s Memorial Scholarship is a trade school scholarship.

How you can participate:

• Donate a prize.

• Donate funds for a prize to be purchased (gift cards are a great way to do this!)

• Attend next year’s Giving Gala event and purchase raffle tickets.

• Share the event.

• Invite your friends and family.
