The Ohio Cattlemen’s Foundation (OCF) held the second annual Cattlemen’s Gala Celebration and Fundraiser Saturday, Aug. 25 at Leeds Farm in Ostrander, Ohio. The event supported the OCF youth scholarship fund benefiting the next generation of beef industry leaders.
Attendees gathered in their boots and hats for dinner, drinks and dancing in the barn at Leeds Farm where guests enjoyed live music from the John D. Hale Band, a nationally known Red Dirt music group from Missouri.
Silent and live auctions were held to support youth scholarships. Thanks to several generous donors, buyers and sponsors, in total, the event raised $35,000.
“The young people in our industry are impressive, and the opportunity for them to further their education and careers is well deserved. The Cattlemen’s Gala is an exciting way to show our support,” said Joe Foster, OCF president from Gallipolis.
Mark your calendars for the 2019 Cattlemen’s Gala Celebration and Fundraiser that will take place Aug. 24.
