Honey Brake Presents Largest Single Donor Pledge in Louisiana 4-H History
Honey Brake representatives Tack Robinson and Drew Keeth visited LSU Campus on September 28th to sign a historic $1 million pledge to support educational trips and camps endowments for Louisiana 4-H.
Several months ago, Louisiana 4-H was in desperate need of a location to hold its annual Guns & Gumbo Fundraiser. With all funds raised, the original partner site was unable to host the event due to high Mississippi River levels. LSU AgCenter and 4-H staff across the state discovered Honey Brake Lodge. 4-H Foundation representatives submitted a proposal and Honey Brake replied with a three-word email: “It’s a go.” Today’s announcement embodies that same boundless spirit for 4-H youth development and environmental conservation.
Louisiana 4-H serves over 200,000 youth annually and Honey Brake breathed new life into their biggest fundraising event. Now they’re making history again with the largest single donor pledge in Louisiana 4-H history.
Honey Brake has since engaged with 4-H Junior Leaders and other retreats at their 96-bed youth camp facility. Plans for countless partnerships are on the horizon including shooting sports competitions and training camps, youth wetlands education programs, wildlife photography, outdoor skills television shows, and aligning the outdoor skills industry with Louisiana 4-H in previously unimaginable ways.
