Denim & Diamonds

A Night to Remember

Each November Oregon Aglink hosts Denim & Diamonds, an awards dinner and auction, to celebrate annual award recipients while raising funds for the Oregon Aglink Foundation which supports programs like Adopt a Farmer.

Each year this event serves to recognize those who have gone above and beyond in advocating the importance of agriculture to the economic, environmental and social well-being of the state of Oregon. Award winners are selected by the Oregon Aglink Board of Directors each spring.
