About the Equipment Dealers Foundation
Equipment dealers, friends and association members raised over $35,000 in two summer fundraising events.
Equipment Dealers Foundation (EDF) hosts fundraising events yearly to help raise funds to support technical education scholarships.
The 2023 season consisted of four clay shoots in Kansas City, Tulsa, Austin, and Madison and a golf tournament in Kansas City.
Each event offered prizes and a chance for area dealers and partners to network while having a great time supporting the equipment industry.
Kansas City-area Clay Shoot
After a day of shooting and camaraderie, the Equipment Dealers Foundation (EDF) raised mo
re than $10,000 at the Kansas City-area clay shoot on July 21 at Powder Creek Shooting Park in Lenexa, Kansas.
A total of 15 four-shooter teams participated, including the four KanEquip teams who rolled up in style in a limo bus. KanEquip brought two teams of interns as part of their onboarding process to expose them to this fundraising event that focuses on raising money to help educate those entering the equipment industry.
Greg Wells, from team Derr Equipment, earned the title of Top Shooter with a score of 93. His contribution helped lead the team to take home the Top Shooting Team recognition with a total of 34

In addition to the Kansas City-area clay shoot, EDF held fundraising events in Austin, Madison and Tulsa. Look for a summary of these events in the next issue of Equipment Dealer Magazine.
Those interested in participating during the next Kansas City clay shoot fundraiser should make sure their guns are locked and loaded for July 26, 2024.
Kansas City-area Golf Classic
The Kansas City-area golf tournament also had great success. Seventeen teams of four braved the intense heat to raise more than $25,000 while hitting the links at Falcon Lakes Golf Club in Basehor, Kansas, on Friday, August 25.
The AgDirect 2 team consisted of Mark Smith, Derek Sybert, Cole Miller and Steve Morgan, and they took home Top Team Flight A with a score of -15. It was a fight for the top recognition as the Foley Equipment team of Matt McNett, Aaron Smith, Jarrod Haas and Jeremy Blair also scored -15. After a draw, the Foley Equipment team received 2nd place in Flight A.
Top Team Flight B was the AgDirect 1 team: Brian Schrock, Wendy Hall, Drew Cox and Andrew Homfeld, with a score of -8. Also tied for this position was the John Deere team of Kyle Barry, Bobby Partin, Alex Sierra and Evan Savage who received 2nd place in Flight B after the draw.
