RECORD BREAKING AUCTION FOR FRIENDS OF CANADIAN SIMMENTAL FOUNDATION
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 15, 2018
Calgary, Alberta Canada - Record breaking temperatures were not the only record broken at this year's Canadian Simmental Association's (CSA) National Convention. In excess of 300 people gathered for the Friends of Canadian Simmental Foundation (FCSF) annual auction in Olds, Alberta August 11, 2018.
The Foundation auction is always a highlight of the CSA's National Convention and this year's totals shattered previous amounts raising a record breaking $127,866.00 to support education, research and youth activities. Over 60 auction items were generously donated for the live auction, followed by 17 silent auction items. Lot 1 of the live auction, a bred heifer donated by Lewis Farms, Spruce Grove, AB was auctioned off and broke another record by raising $33,700.00 for the FCSF. Final sale results can be found on our FCSF website and face book page.
During the 2018 Young Canadian Simmental Association's (YCSA) National show, which was held the final day of the Convention, the FCSF Directors presented $20,000.00 from the auction proceeds to the YCSA for ongoing youth activities.
"The Foundation is thrilled with the success of our 2018 auction" stated FCSF President Ken Lewis. "The funds collected will continue to be used for youth programing, education and scholarships. Thank you to all the buyers, donators, volunteers and staff that made this year a record breaking event!"
The Quebec Simmental Association and FCSF looks forward to hosting next year's Foundation Auction in St-Hyacinthe, August 10th 2019.
