Angus Under the Oklahoma Stars
Mark your calendars for the Oklahoma Stars Gala to support the Angus Foundation’s mission.
Join the Angus Foundation under the Oklahoma Stars to celebrate and support the Angus family. The Oklahoma Stars Gala is to be held January 9, 2021 at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City during Cattlemen’s Congress.
Join us as we take a trip back to the Old West as we honor the past and celebrate the future of the Angus breed and its members. The event will include one-of-a-kind auction items, food, live music and fellowship which will fill the halls of America’s premier institution of Western history, art and culture, the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.
“We are so excited to host the Angus family in Oklahoma City during the Oklahoma Stars Gala,” said Thomas Martin, executive director of the Angus Foundation. “Your participation in the gala provides a remarkable gift to fulfilling the mission of the Angus Foundation.”
A gift to the Angus Fund provides unrestricted support to cover the Angus Foundation’s core mission—youth, education and research. From academic scholarships, leadership conferences, relevant educational training, funding for the National Junior Angus Board and cutting-edge research, the Foundation supports a wide array of programs.
“Last fiscal year, through donors like you, the Angus Foundation invested $767,00 in youth, education and research,” Marten said.
Tickets are available for $200 a couple or $125 for individuals. To reserve your seat, fill out the form here or call at 816-233-9703. The deadline for reservations are December 30.
Since 1998, the Angus Foundation has awarded more than $3.5 million in undergraduate and graduate scholarships. For more information about the Angus Foundation or scholarships, visit AngusFoundation.org.
