Third Shorthorn Foundation Heifer to sell at the Leading a Legacy Fundraiser.
OMAHA, Neb., (September 22, 2014) – The third annual Leading a Legacy Sale – a fundraiser for the National Junior Shorthorn Show, is set to take place Saturday, October 18, 2014 starting with a complimentary prime rib meal at 6 p.m. CST. Hosting the event again this year is Sullivan Farms in Dunlap, Iowa.
An auction of twenty-four unique lots will begin at 7 p.m. followed by a Vegas Night with one hundred percent of the proceeds going towards the National Junior Shorthorn Show. To start the auction, a Foundation Female lot will be offered for sale. Donated this year by Rockin’ G Land and Cattle, Middletown, Illinois, the Foundation Female is a daughter of SULL Red Reward 9321 and SULL Mirage Forever 8121.
Other items to be featured in the auction include: the opportunity to advertise on the cover of the National Junior Shorthorn Show program, a guitar signed by the Eli Young Band, a Legacy Livestock Imaging photo shoot, and several trips. Junior Shorthorn supporters will also have the opportunity to bid on many other unique and useful items throughout the evening.
Excitement is building for the event. Director of Junior Activities, Gwen Crawford, commented, “The Leading a Legacy Sale is one of our largest fundraisers for our juniors. It is an opportunity for the Junior and Senior members to come together for a fun evening of Shorthorn fellowship and support a great cause.”
Last year’s sale grossed over $64,000 for the Shorthorn Junior National. “The amount of support from juniors and breeders was incredible,” host John Sullivan said. “The junior national means a lot to Shorthorn kids and the results proved that.”
