World Ag Expo donates proceeds to Valley Children's Hospital

Donation comes from sale of tickets in Toyota raffle during 2015 World Ag Expo

The International Agri-Center and World Ag Expo presented a check on May 27 for $36,350 to Valley Children’s Hospital during its All Guild Picnic at Sumner Peck Ranch in Friant, Calif. 

The check represented the total funds raised by the Guilds of Valley Children’s Hospital who participated in World Ag Expo’s Toyota Tundra Giveaway by selling chances to win a new 2015 Tundra.  The giveaway proceeds will directly benefit the Central California hospital through its guilds.

“Valley Children’s Hospital is deeply appreciative for the support of World Ag Expo and Toyota,” said Todd Suntrapak, chief executive officer of Valley Children’s Hospital.

“Their generosity and leadership, acting in concert with the Guilds of Valley Children’s Hospital, will help us continue our journey to become the nation’s best children’s hospital in 2016.”

The new $30,000 Tundra truck, won by Oscar Gonzalez of Fresno on the final day of World Ag Expo, was donated by the Northern California Toyota Dealers’ Association.

“This is a great partnership between Toyota, World Ag Expo and Valley Children’s Hospital,” said Jerry Sinift, Chief Executive Officer, International Agri-Center. 

“We’re pleased to support Valley Children’s and the community through programs at World Ag Expo.”
