It’s that time of the year again! If you’ve attended the Sandhills Cattle Association Annual Convention in the last 83 years, you know what a big impact our attendees, donors, and supporters have made at past events. Just last year, with the community's help, our Scholarship Benefit Auction raised over $8,500 for our scholarship program through generous donations from individuals and businesses across the region who sincerely care about the future of agriculture.
For 31 years, the Sandhills Cattle Association has awarded scholarships to the youth of the Association members. In that time, 500 applications have been reviewed and reduced to 143 scholarship recipients, who have been awarded $120,250 just from the Sandhills Cattle Association alone. Because of this, each year, we are able to donate $9,000 to the continuing education of the Sandhills youth. However, we could NOT do this without donations from you and others like you who care about the future of the community.
This year’s Scholarship Benefit Auction will be held on May 27, 2022, at the Atkinson Community Center in Atkinson, Nebraska in conjunction with the Convention & Trade Show. This event funds our scholarship program and this year’s goal is to raise over $10,000. We’re currently looking for donated items such as coolers, paintings, photography, coats, hats, western decor, and more that can be auctioned off to help us meet our goal. Do you have an amazing item that you’d like to donate to be auctioned off?
With your donation, you will be recognized with pre and post-event publications, social media campaigns, listed in the convention booklet, and of course, recognized at the auction. Please sign up to donate your auction item online at www.SandhillsCattle.com/scholarship-donations. Please submit your donation by May 6, 2022, to maximize exposure for your donation.
Thank you in advance for your contribution. I hope to see you at the 83rd Annual Convention & Trade Show!
