A crowd favourite for the Roundup crew is the Special Dinner Dance, and 2022 saw no exception. 

Taking place on Saturday, October 8th, the Special Dinner Dance brought together over 250 participants, parents and guardians and sponsors.  

Supported by dinner partners Red Angus Australia, Nutrien Ag Solutions and Angus Victoria, the evening was full of good fun and even better food, with a delicious entrée and main, featuring NH Foods Australia’s Verified Black Angus Beef Brand, Angus Reserve served up for all to enjoy. 

Moving to the main cause of the evening, everyone involved dug deep in the name of generosity, with fundraising efforts raising over $25,000 for the Angus Youth.   

Auction items ranged from semen packages, fine art and more and were in hot demand with the silent and live auctions attracting bidders from the audience and via AuctionsPlus. The auction was conducted by Peter Goldbolt from Nutrien Ag. 

All funds raised from the evenings efforts go to support youth development and education that benefits the Australian beef industry. 

These programs are designed to encourage and assist the involvement of young people in the Australian beef industry, to provide professional development opportunities for young beef breeders. 

“We extend a huge thank you to everyone who donated to the cause and assisted in raising a huge figure for the Angus Youth programs,” said Angus Australia Extension Manager Jake Phillips. 

“Without the support of those who donate, the opportunities provided by the Angus Youth program and the Angus Foundation would not be possible.  Through contributing to the program, you are assisting young people from all walks of life, including many who will go on to forge careers in the cattle industry, who otherwise may not have had the chance to take part in such activities.” 

“We really do say a big thank you to all those that have been so generous.”
