The Farmers Bowl Auction will be held for the 19th time in 2014. The first auction, held in 1997, raised more than $14,000. This amount has increased substantially over the years, as about $40,000 was taken each year for several years. In each of the last few years more than $60,000 was generated through all Farmers Bowl activities, including a cash raffle that has brought in up to $10,000. The proceeds of the auction and other Farmers Bowl fund-raising activities are administered by the MSU Foundation for the benefit of Mayville State University and its students.
