As many of you may know, I have been involved with Rodeo Austin for many years. Rodeo Austin is a 501(c)(3) organization, contributing more than $2 million annually to the youth of Texas. The largest source of this giving is through the Youth Auction. Last year, the Youth Auction Committee and its generous buyers raised more than $1.44 million for 414 of the top junior livestock exhibitors.
The youth who receive funds from the Youth Auction are members of 4-H and FFA. In addition to raising a livestock project, these hard working kids are most often involved with sports, other extracurricular activities and their community. The job of the Youth Auction Committee is to raise funds and reward these kids for a job well done. This is an exciting process for the kids as they walk across the auction block and hear live bids on Friday, March 23 at ACL Live. The exhibitors will use these funds for college, investing in future livestock projects, starting their own businesses or in pursuit of other endeavors for their future.
My buyers group is called Benny Boyd Buyers Group
Please help me raise funds for the youth of Texas. Or better yet, get involved with us. Ask me how.
