2015 Convention Results

2015 Benefit Auction Raises Over $5,000

We would like to thank all of the donors, bidders and buyers. We appreciate your generosity and support. We also want to thank the bid takers, Duane McClain and Travis Schauda, as well as Tessie Harvey for assisting with displaying the items during the auction. A special thank you goes to Mike Baxter of Ranchland Auction Service, Ainsworth, Ne., who served as our auctioneer and kept things moving, but also entertained us along the way and made the auction fun. We appreciate his time and talents, which help us raise these funds. The live auction total was $5,325. THANK YOU!
