Angus Foundation raises over $20,000 at 2021 National Angus Convention & Trade Show
To kick off the 2021 National Angus Convention and Trade Show, the Angus Foundation hosted a welcome reception for convention attendees on Friday, Nov. 5. The event featured live and silent auction offerings to raise unrestricted funds to use in furthering the Foundation’s mission of supporting education, youth and research within the Angus breed. Proceeds from the event will support scholarships, youth conferences and research projects in the coming year.

“The generosity of so many great donors at the welcome reception sets the path forward as we launch into a new fiscal year and prepare to fund many worthy programs in 2022,” said Thomas Marten, Angus Foundation executive director.

National Junior Angus Board chairman, Alexandria Cozzitorto, spoke at the reception on behalf of the countless Angus youth who have been impacted by the Angus Foundation’s mission. “I am proud to be a product of the generosity of Angus Foundation donors,” said Cozzitorto. “We’re grateful for your belief in the next generation.”

The auctions grossed $20,070 in proceeds from the silent and live offerings. The high-selling live auction lot was the HeliBacon Hog Hunt, selling for $12,000 to Pleasant Valley Farms. Topping the silent auction was the Men’s Custom Pure Beaver Hat, donated by Greeley Hat Works, Inc. and selling to Mike Mayfield. Through generous donations, the auction offered an impressive variety of items for Angus enthusiasts to consider as they enjoyed an evening of networking and Certified Angus Beef ® brand hors d'oeuvres.
