Oklahoma Stars Event Highlights Support of the Angus Breed

Wed, 20 Jan 2021 09:13:36 CST

Oklahoma Stars Event Highlights Support of the Angus Breed The Angus breed is not only committed to breeding high-quality cattle but also developing successful leaders and opportunities for its members. On Saturday, January 9, 2021, members of the Angus community gathered for the Oklahoma Stars event at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City to support that mission. This inaugural event held during Cattlemen’s Congress raised more than $50,000 for the Angus Foundation.

            “We are so grateful for those who spent the evening with us at the Oklahoma Stars event,” said Thomas Marten, Angus Foundation executive director. “It is through the loyal and generous support of our growing number of donors that many opportunities are available to our Angus youth.”

Attendees had the opportunity to step back into the past and learn about the values that the old west was founded on as they toured the Western Heritage and Cowboy Museum. Texas red dirt musician, Tell Runyan, set the mood for the evening and attendees enjoyed a Certified Angus Beefâ dinner.

The evening’s program highlighted past and present successful National Junior Angus Association members such as Dylan Denny, Jara Settles and Megan Pelan, who have directly benefited from Angus Foundation-supported programs. A passion to help the Angus Foundation’s mission of supporting youth, education and research was evident throughout the night.

The evening also included a live auction, where Matt Sims sold 18 lots. Bidders participated in person as well as online, thanks to LiveAuctions.TV. A few of the high-selling items of the evening were the guided crappie fishing tour, donated by Double G Farms, that brought $3,750 and the guided mule deer hunt, donated by Diamond Peak Cattle Company, that raised $12,000.

“It was great to have the Angus Family together in Oklahoma City again,” said Mark McCully, American Angus Association CEO. “There is no way we could offer the opportunities to members without the support of our tremendous donors of the Angus Foundation.”

One thing for certain is that Angus breeders are committed to forwarding the breed and its future leaders. For more information on the Angus Foundation, contact Thomas Marten at tmarten@angus.org or visit AngusFoundation.org.
