“Building an Angus legacy!” Granite Planter Auction Extended
Angus enthusiasts have the opportunity to have their brand or logo permanently engraved into a polished black granite planter at the American Angus Association headquarters’ front entrance by making their bids for this recognition at www.angustradingpost.com. To allow Angus members and friends more time to be notified about the auction, the deadline to bid has been extended from March 20 to March 31.
This planter is the first of four planters available, and recognition on the three remaining planters will be offered at a later date. The winning bidder for recognition on the first planter will have the opportunity to engrave a logo or brand on one face of the planter and text that includes a name, farm or ranch name, etc., on the face directly across from the brand or logo. The winning bidder will also be able to choose the location, from one of four location opportunities, for this first planter.
The granite planter recognition auction is part of the Angus Foundation’s “Building an Angus legacy!” brick naming drive, available only for a limited time, March 1–July 1, 2013. Net proceeds from this project will benefit Angus youth, education and research programs.
The American Angus Association front entrance walkway will be completely remodeled with black granite and red brick to match the historic building. Until July 1, 2013, for a tax-deductible unrestricted donation of $250, $500 or $2,500 to “Building an Angus legacy!” you will be recognized on a beautiful personalized engraved granite paver.
Only text will be allowed on the granite pavers, and each paver size has line and character limits to follow. Purchasing recognition on a granite planter is the only opportunity to have a brand or logo displayed.
Feel free to visit www.angusfoundation.org for more information and to order your pavers online, or call the Foundation at 816-383-5100.
