Funds raised for American Junior Shorthorn Association KEY Conference

More than $11,000 was raised for the American Junior Shorthorn Association KEY (Knowledge Empowers Youth) Conference activities at the "Build Our Youth, Build Our Breed" fundraiser held with The Great Shorthorn Revival on Sept. 22 in Beaverton, Mich. The evening included "The Great Chili Challenge" where Revival consignors brought their best batches of chili and salsa for qualified judges and guests. Over $2,000 came from chili mug purchases and voters alone during the tasting challenge.

The top-selling auction item of the evening was the 1885 Carpenter's Chest, purchased by Sisung Farms, St. Johns, Mich., for $4,500. The item was donated by Little Cedar Cattle Company, Beaverton, Mich.

"Our goal was to raise $5,000 for the KEY Conference Fundraiser as the Michigan Association agreed to match our $5,000 once we raised it," said Gwen Crawford, ASA director of Junior Activities. "To more then double our goal was exciting and so appreciated. The funds will be used for transportation during the event and with the additional funds raised we will be able to give stipends to help participants get to the event."

KEY Conference is an opportunity for youth, ages 14 to 21, to develop leadership skills, experience a college campus, expand knowledge and understanding of current issues in the agricultural industry and gain new friendships. The 2013 leadership conference will be held July 26 to 28, 2013, at Michigan State University, East Lansing, Mich.
