Angus Foundation Silent Auction Raises $9,488 for Education, Youth and Research

Silent Auction proceeds will benefit the Vision of Value: Campaign for Angus, which aims to raise $11 million by the end of this year.


Angus supporters of all ages came together at the National Junior Angus Show in Harrisburg, Pa. to support the 2011 Angus Foundation Silent Auction July 13-16, which grossed $9,488 in proceeds benefiting the Foundation’s education, youth and research activities. Individual donors and state Angus associations contributed 68 items to the 16th annual auction.

“The Angus Foundation’s Silent Auction is always a fun and enjoyable activity, and it’s our pleasure to offer this fundraiser at the NJAS,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “This activity, however, is made possibly only by the generous gifts of wonderful and creative auction items, followed of course by the bids placed on the items by our always supportive Angus youth, their parents and our many friends and guests at the NJAS. This collective effort by all involved is what makes the fundraiser successful with everyone feeling enormous satisfaction knowing they helped raise funds for our education, youth and research endeavors!”

Dick and Diane Beck of Senioa, Ga., purchased the top-selling item for $1,250. It was a framed print of Frank Champion Murphy’s pastel sketch “The Angus Breed is Launched in the United States of America.” F.C. Murphy had signed the print to Lyle Haring, a past regional manager for the American Angus Association. The item was donated by Just Enuff Angus, Bethlehem, Pa.

The second high-selling item was five straws of semen from the Angus bull Exar Lutton 1831, which was donated by Hannah and Ester McCabe of Elk City, Kan. Michael and Julie Whiteside of WF Angus, Queenstown, Md. were the winning bidders on this item for $900.

From its inception in 1995, the silent auction has grown annually as a fundraiser that generates unrestricted financial support for various activities sponsored by the Angus Foundation, such as the Leaders Engaged in Angus Development (LEAD) Conference, Cattlemen’s Bootcamp and bovine genome mapping research.
