Denim & Diamonds

A Night to Remember

Every November, Oregon Aglink hosts Denim & Diamonds, an awards dinner and auction, which affords us the opportunity to raise funds for the Cultivating Common Ground initiative, ultimately supporting all of our programs like Adopt a Farmer and telling ag’s story.
