Help Support the Youth of Texas
By funding the "lower end" of the HLSR Poultry Auction
Our purpose is to support the “Lower End” of the Poultry Auction. Each year hundreds of FFA and 4-H Club members (tomorrow’s future leaders), spend significant amounts of time and money raising poultry to participate in the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo’s Junior Poultry Auction. The poultry is judged then auctioned off. The Grand Champions and select pens bring the highest prices, naturally. The bidding for the “Lower End” drops off tremendously. That’s where The Fowl Bunch steps up.
Re-cap – How WE did in 2015…
HLSR Jr Market Poultry Auction – Contributed $54,000 at the Poultry Auction on 30 Lots between Lot No. 92 and final Lot No. 172, supporting 60 High School student/participants. Total contributions, inception to date, over $675,000, rank 4th all-time contributor at the Poultry Auction.
HLSR WCBBQ Cook-off – Placed 1st Runner-up Ribs out of 181 rib entries, and 6th Overall out of 419 entries.
Sporting Clays Event – Due to inclement weather, we postponed the event from February to June 16th and had 18 teams (72 shooters). We decided to keep with a June date for future events in hopes of favorable weather conditions. (Looking for underwriters for our event scheduled for June 13, 2016.)
Summer Appreciation Party – Held July 25th out at Lakewood Forest Kennels in Cypress. Contributors of $100 or more will receive invitation in 2016.
Looking forward to 2016 – With your help, we hope to continue supporting the HLSR Junior Poultry Auction. Every dollar spent at the auction goes directly to Youth & Education. Poultry purchased by The FOWL BUNCH, Inc. is donated to various charitable organizations in the Houston area.
"Just wanted to tell everyone at The Fowl Bunch thank you very much! My son (Isaac) showed at the HLSR this year for the first time. He is 12 years old and worked very hard on his project this year. He has learned so much working with his chickens, and still has some learning to do. But I really think he learned a lot going to a major show and seeing how people that don't even know him are willing to help support him. You guys were great and even treated us, the parents, like rock stars behind the scenes. I just felt like you guys are really doing a lot for the kids and wanted to say Thank You .− Tina and Cody (Isaac), Somerville, Texas, 2015
I know God will bless you all for your works. God Bless!
