Angus & Your Future
The annual Angus Foundation Supporter Recognition Event will be held Friday, Nov. 3, 2017, in Fort Worth, Texas.
The Angus Foundation is continuously making a positive difference in the future of the Angus breed through education, youth and research efforts. Each year, the Angus Foundation aims to provide additional opportunities and strengthen donor support of the many programs the Angus Foundation funds.
The Angus Foundation will once again recognize supporters who have contributed $250 or more during the current fiscal year (Oct. 1, 2016-Sept. 30, 2017). The event will take place at 6 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 3, at the Omni Hotel, Fort Worth, Texas, in conjunction with the 2017 National Angus Convention. For anyone interested in attending, there’s still time to submit a donation to the Angus Foundation.
“The Angus Foundation Supporter Recognition Event is an annual way for the Angus Foundation Board of Directors and staff to show generous supporters appreciation for everything they do,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “The Angus Foundation is truly blessed with an unprecedented amount of support from across the Angus breed.”
The evening will kick off with a social at 6 p.m., followed by a dinner featuring Certified Angus Beef®. During the program, outstanding supporters will be recognized, in addition to donors in the Lifetime Giving Recognition program who have reached or exceeded $25,000 in total giving this fiscal year. The National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) Carcass Steer Contest winners will also be recognized.
The program will be capped by the auction of a one-of-a-kind commissioned artwork by C.J. Brown called “Leading Into Your Future”. The artwork celebrates the 50th anniversary of the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS), which is coming up in 2018, by featuring five owned heifer champions from the past 50 years of winners at the NJAS. Proceeds will benefit Angus Foundation education, youth and research initiatives.
