$236,508 Raised for Feeding South Dakota
The South Dakota Cattlemen’s Foundation presented a check for $236,508 to Feeding South Dakota on Saturday night during the Prime Time Gala & Concert at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center.
Over 1,540 guests attended the fourth annual gala that also included a silent and live auction as well as a raffle of a new truck from Billion Chevrolet.
During the gala again this year, a total of $10,000 in scholarships was awarded to four students attending South Dakota schools interested in the improvement of beef production and promotion to aid in their education.
After the gala concluded, the night was highlighted with a country music concert at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center with Carly Pearce, Scotty McCreery and headliner, Martina McBride.
This year’s donation exceeded the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Foundation goal by over$86,500. "We truly couldn’t do the work that we do if it wasn’t for the support and the generosity of our farmers, our state’s cattlemen and cattlewomen, of the producers and of course, the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Foundation,” said Matt Gassen, CEO of Feeding South Dakota.
