Angus Foundation hosts second annual Oklahoma Stars event
Angus enthusiasts invited to celebrate the breed and support the Angus Foundation’s mission.
The Angus Foundation will host its second annual Oklahoma Stars event Jan. 5 at the historic Will Rogers Theatre in Oklahoma City, Okla. in conjunction with the 2022 Cattlemen’s Congress. The event will feature live music, hors d'oeuvres and exciting auction offerings as Angus enthusiasts gather for an evening of fellowship. The theatre’s doors will open at 6:30 p.m., with no RSVP necessary and casual attire welcome. The Angus Foundation invites both those attending the Cattlemen’s Congress and those in the Oklahoma City area to take advantage of this opportunity to visit with friends, enjoy food and entertainment and peruse the unique auction lots up for grabs.
"As we gather together to celebrate our breed and kick off the new year, we are excited to once again host breeders and friends under the Oklahoma Stars," said Thomas Marten, Angus Foundation executive director. "Generous donors have provided an incredible lineup from an elk hunt to an all-leather designer rolling suitcase."
Funds raised through the auction will benefit the Angus Fund, which provides unrestricted support allowing the Angus Foundation to fulfill its mission of youth, education and research. The Angus Foundation supports a diverse set of efforts focused on ensuring a bright future for the breed. Academic scholarships, leadership conferences, cutting-edge research and funding for the National Junior Angus Board are among the many programs sustained by the Angus Fund.
Since 1998, the Angus Foundation has awarded more than $3.9 million in undergraduate and graduate scholarships. For more information about the Angus Foundation or scholarships, visit AngusFoundation.org.
