CROSBY — Although official tallies are not completed yet and there is still to be much billed and collected, it seems the livestock sale last Wednesday including silent auction, live auction, resale and other factors, brought in about $375,000 total. About 60 local youth exhibited livestock or Ag. mechanics or horticulture exhibits, and sales were at a record high, including the grand champion steer for $25,000 to Bayshore Dodge. Unofficial tallies indicate that the Livestock Live Auction brought about $310,000, but there was much on-going. Next week the Star-Courier intends to present the Livestock Auction in full photo of the grand and reserves.

CROSBY – Tough Enough to Wear Pink a committee of the Crosby Fair & Rodeo raised a stunning amount of money from the Bras for the Cause last February. Last Saturday they gave those funds to two deserving charities that help people fighting cancer, and they passed a million dollar milestone in funds they raised and gave away, too.
Lanette Armstrong said, “I am thankful to have the support of the community that we have year after year. Although we are a small community it blows me away that we are able to do this and give back. There are so many people that are in such need.”
