Monday Fundraiser to Raise Money for All American Beef Battalion at Oklahoma National StockyardsSat, 13 Dec 2014 14:42:46 CST
National Livestock Credit Corporation and affiliated companies are planning to offer for the fifth year a special calf auction to support the All American Beef Battalion. The auction of a donated calf will take place during the regular Monday auction of the Oklahoma National Stockyards in Oklahoma City on December 15th at approximately 10 AM.
In 2013, the auction and reauction multiple times of a single calf resulted in over $43,000 being raised for the Battalion. National's involvement over the past four years has helped raise over $160,000 from the annual auction of a calf each December.
The 2015 calf to be auctioned is being donated by 3C Cattle Feeders and the Clyde Runyan family of Mill Creek, OKlahoma. National Livestock Credit Corporation will invoice buyers and collect checks.
Robert York of National Livestock Credit has been a driving force behind this auction fundraiser and says "Many organizations and individuals have joined together for this worthy cause each year. The efforts of many have made this successsful and we thank all our partners and friends for their help. Through these auctions, approximately 16,000 troops have been fed an American ribeye steak upon their return home from deployment."
Anyone may support this effort by calling 800-310-0220 and speaking with Debbie Wedel. If you are unable to attend but would like to support the cause, you can call Debbie for your proxy bid or you may also visit the All American Beef Battalion website by clicking here and make your donation by PayPal.
