Our Club’s Donations in 2018

This Spring, our club has made several donations to local organizations in an effort to support good things that are happening in our community. 

We’re All In! – $2000

“We’re All In!” is a buying group organized by people who are actively involved in promoting the educational experiences gained by youth when raising livestock.  Donations are used to purchase livestock from local youth at the Comal County Junior Live Stock Show to ensure all kids have a buyer.

Project Graduation uses the money to sponsor non-alcoholic parties after graduation ceremonies.
