Oklahoma Stars event raises over $62,000 for Angus Foundation The Angus breed has set itself apart not only in its commitment to produce high-quality cattle, but also to ensure a bright future for the breed. Support for the Angus Foundation allows it to effectively carry out its mission of youth, education and research. On Jan. 5, Angus enthusiasts gathered at the Will Rogers Theatre in Oklahoma City, Okla. for the second annual Oklahoma Stars event. Held during the 2022 Cattlemen’s Congress, the event raised over $62,000 for the Angus Foundation.

“We are so grateful for those who spent the evening with us at the Oklahoma Stars event,” said Thomas Marten, Angus Foundation executive director. “It is through the loyal and generous support of our growing number of donors that many opportunities are available to our Angus youth and breed.”

Attendees spent the evening at the historic Will Rogers Theatre enjoying live music from local band Grassland Caravan and Certified Angus Beefฎ hors d'oeuvres. Tickets were sold for the chance to win several raffle items, including a Certified Angus Beefฎ brand cooler, Certified Angus Beefฎ brand knife set, cigars and whiskey package and a Vytelle embryo package. The highlight of the evening was the live auction, featuring a variety of exciting lots donated by generous supporters. The high-selling lot was the New Mexico Elk Hunt, donated by Reverse Rocking R Ranch, which brought $20,000.

“It was a great evening for the Angus family to gather in support of the Angus Foundation,” said Mark McCully, American Angus Association CEO. “It’s our tremendous donors that allow us to offer such incredible opportunities to our members.”

Funds raised from the event will benefit the Angus Fund, which provides unrestricted support allowing the Angus Foundation to support 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.
