Weld County 4-H Events

Weld County 4-H offers several county activities for members and leaders to participate in. They include:

Traeger Grill Raffle

BBQ Provisions by 5280 Culinary has generously donated the Weld County 4-H Foundation a Traeger Grill to raffle off in 2020.  The Grand Prize is a Traeger Pro 575 Free Standing Wood Pellet Grill and Pellets.  The drawing will be held November 21, 2020 at 7:00 pm at the annual Mardi Gras.

Great 4-H Club Fundraiser

The Weld County 4-H Foundation raffle returns half of the ticket sales money to the club or group that sold the tickets. This is a much better rate of return than the 25% (one quarter percent) returns grocery store card sales yield and what other fundraising companies provide. If you are interested in selling raffle tickets to raise money, contact Kim at (970) 400-2079.
