MSGA announces Ice Fish House raffle

The Minnesota Soybean Growers Association has gone fishing to raise funds for its grassroots advocacy mission.

At the 2021 Biodiesel Open, MSGA unveiled its latest fundraising venture, an 8 by 18-foot fish house made in Minnesota with soy-based materials. The all seasons model is made with soy-based spray insulation, furniture cushions, paint, cabinetry and flooring. It sleeps six, has a toilet and shower, features eight ice holes and LED strip lighting and more.

The 8-by-18-foot Ice House comes with eight ice holes and stainless steel appliances. For just $100, it could be yours!

MSGA is selling $100 raffle tickets (cash or check only), and only 500 tickets are available. Tickets can be purchased via MSGA board members, at select Profinium locations and at Minnesota Soybean‘s Mankato headquarters. The winner will be unveiled on Jan. 20, 2022 at MN AG EXPO (the winner need not be present to win). Please note: The winner will be responsible for all applicable fees and taxes.

The fish house is sponsored by MSGA, the Minnesota Soybean Research & Promotion Council, Profinium, Houston Engineering and Outdoor Getaway. All proceeds from the raffle benefit MSGA’s nonpartisan mission to advocate for farm-friendly policies in St. Paul and Washington, D.C.

“This fish house has everything a Minnesotan could want – and more,” MSGA President Mike Skaug said. “And by entering the raffle, you’re helping to support MSGA’s efforts at the legislative level.”
