Lone Star Cattlemen Host Wild Game Dinner!

The Lone Star Cattlemen (LSC) Foundation may not be a familiar name to your ears but ask any one of the young Texans who received a scholarship or support funds for a 4-H or FFA livestock project who they are and the future rancher or farmer will readily tell you what LSC means to them.

“Receiving a donation from the LSC Foundation helped me add to my college fund and allowed me to attend Texas State University, where I’m studying to become an agriculture teacher,” states LSC recipient Amy Torres, a McNeil High School FFA alumna.

LSC, a local non-profit organization established in 2001, supports countless Central Texas young people who spend hours preparing livestock and other special projects for competition in area shows. Todate LSC has donated more than $250,000 through the purchase of hundreds of 4-H and FFA livestock projects.

The Lone Star Cattlemen Foundation, in conjunction with Texas Disposal Systems and many generous sponsors, is hosting A Night at the Ranch on Friday, October 15, at the Texas Disposal Systems Exotic Game Ranch located in Buda, Texas. The evening’s proceeds will benefit LSC’s scholarship and project support fund.

The event features mouth-watering wild game appetizers, a tasty bar-b-que dinner and Texas’ own Charlie Robinson as the night’s entertainer. Live and silent auctions featuring extraordinary items such as dueling Texas A&M University and University of Texas packages containing air painted shotguns specially designed for the occasion, a unique skeet shoot competition with a new Beretta shotgun as a prize are also part of the fun and entertaining evening.

“This evening is THE event of the year! It is our first fundraising event of this magnitude and we’re excited to do all we can to support our hardworking and very deserving kids,” states Event Chairperson Cindy Greenwood. For more information visit www.LoneStarCattlemen.com or call 512.320.0377.
