In early January, Los Banos FFA chose four members, one from each class, to be sweetheart candidates. The Sweetheart Fundraiser sells heart balloons to the community. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and raises thousands of dollars for our chapter. The winner was chosen based off who sold the most balloons. This years winner, was senior candidate, Tess Menezes. We would like to thank Tess and the other three candidates, Janessa Jimenez, Cassiana Rolicheck, Gianna Warren, and their families for the hard work they put in. All together, they raised over 28,600 dollars for our chapter. We would also like to give a huge thank you to the Los Banos, Gustine, and Dos Palos Communities who purchased over 7,000 balloons to support the Los Banos FFA Chapter. Out of the 7,000, around 1,000 was donated generously to the Valley Children’s Hospital in Madera.
