Over 130 agricultural bankers gathered in Wisconsin Dells on April 10-11 for the annual WBA Agricultural Bankers Conference. As the conference takes place during National Community Banking Month and just a few weeks prior to WBA's second annual Power of Community Week, attendees had the chance to purchase raffle tickets for great prizes. 100% of the raffle proceeds were donated to the Wisconsin FFA Foundation.

Several $100 gift cards and raffle basket prizes were on display for attendees to view and enter to win.
