The Tennessee Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom awards numerous outdoor classroom grants to schools. AITC also conducts agricultural workshops with hundreds of attendees across the state of Tennessee. In order to do this, we must rely upon donations and fundraisers such as the Farmers Open Classic. For the Farmers Open to be a success, we need the support of friends like you. Any contributions (cash or gifts) will be recognized at the tournament.
