Reserve Your Invitation to the Angus Foundation’s Supporter Recognition Event

The Angus Foundation will host its annual event Nov. 12.


You will want to join the Angus Foundation on Saturday evening, Nov. 12, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Louisville-Airport Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville, Ky., for its Supporter Recognition Event.


In this final year of Vision of Value: Campaign for Angus, the Angus Foundation will recognize supporters from this past fiscal year to the Angus breed’s ambitious $11 million fundraising drive for education, youth and research.


“The Angus Foundation’s Supporter Recognition Event in Louisville is designed to recognize and reward donors for reaching the Angus Foundation’s Associate or above contribution levels in the fiscal year,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “This year’s theme, ‘Champions of the Vision,’ is meant to help honor those ‘champions’ of the Angus breed, who are helping to further advance the Vision of Value: Campaign for Angus toward its $11 million goal by Dec. 31 for education, youth and research programs. We are expecting a large attendance with the noticeable increase in the number of contributions this fiscal year to the Angus Foundation Associate donor level and above. You, too, will want to join us on this special occasion, and you can reserve your invitation by Sept. 30 with a gift of $250 or more to the Angus Foundation.”


Angus Foundation and campaign leadership will update event attendees on the progress of this fundraising initiative benefiting and advancing the Angus breed.   


All Angus supporters who have contributed $250 this fiscal year (Oct. 1, 2010 – Sept. 30, 2011) to the Angus Foundation will be invited to attend this donor recognition celebration.


Special features of the event will be announcements of significant major gifts toward the campaign’s goal of $11 million by Dec. 31, 2011. In addition, American Angus Association® registration No. 17 million will be offered at auction, and proceeds from the sale will contribute to the campaign.


You can guarantee your reservation to the event by making your gift of $250 or more by Sept. 30. Gifts can be made online by Visa or MasterCard, visit and click on “Donate Online” located at the top-right hand corner of the home page.
