CROSBY – A great effort to bring in funds for kids to go to higher education netted about $304 thousand dollars last week at the Crosby Fair & Rodeo Livestock Auction held within the Rockin’ C Arena on June 12.
The area of Crosby was not diminished from past attendance of their annual tradition of supporting the Crosby Fair & Rodeo’s Livestock Auction held for the express purpose of raising money for Crosby High School students to have for higher education.
This year there were extra spots to lavish upon students for having experienced a school year like never before including a special photo of Seniors that exhibited during the year of COVID–19, an extra booster check from the Smith family to the four new rodeo scholars, and other awards that were presented before the auction was conducted by Ricky Loggins.
This year the Belt Buckle Sponsorship was purchased by both John and Teresa Matt and a matching sponsorship by Zorro’s Welding & Fabrication.
According to Auctioneer Rick Loggins, the entire sale brought in about $304,000 and the Grand Champion Steer $17,000 just $2,000 off last year in a year that had to cope with a global pandemic and resultant economic downturn wherein most businesses have yet to reopen at capacity and the county facilities saying they might open by July 16.
