Have Your Logo or Brand Permanently Displayed at the American Angus Association Headquarters
Angus enthusiasts have a second 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. The online auction will take place July 1-11. The auction will close at 10 a.m. on July 11, and the winning bidder will be announced prior to the champion owned heifer drive at the National Junior Angus Show in Kansas City, Mo.
This planter is the second of four planters available, and recognition on the two remaining planters will be offered at a later date. The winning bidder for recognition on the second 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 the three location opportunities left, for this second planter.
Wilma Minix, Black Witch Farm, Hoschton, Ga., purchased recognition on the first of the four planters, for $7,500.
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 through July 15, 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 15, 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. After July 15, if the Angus Foundation opens a second phase for order submission, prices will go up to include on-site engraving cost.
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.
