Each year the North American Limousin Junior Association holds their annual CornerPost fundraiser. These past two years I have had the honor to serve as the CornerPost chairman. Many of you received calls from the junior board of directors asking for participation in this year’s fundraiser by purchasing a syndicate. Thank you to those who donated this year! Your donation goes to support the junior program and helps fund the National Junior Limousin Show & Congress each year. Without the support of breeders, parents, and NALJA supporters we would not be able to participate in national events and shows or show our support to NALF through Awards of Excellence sponsorships.
This year we were fortunate enough to raise $26,675 through our syndicates. These syndicates were combined with the sale of a donated female during the National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colorado making the complete total reach $32,675. This year we were thankful to have Lonely Valley Seedstock/LV Bar donate the pick of their 2017 spring herd at their Plainville, Kansas location as the CornerPost female.
We also had a record year at the Genetics on Ice Benefit Auction. Thank you to all of those who donated syndicates, silent auction items, and Genetics on Ice. We also thank those who took their time with our calls, bid at Genetics on Ice, and bid on the silent auction items. Without your support we would not be able to make a better experience for juniors all across the country.
