On Friday, June 24, young 4-H members and the Bee County Extension Office will team up for the 24th annual South Texas Cattlemen’s RoundUp, benefiting Driscoll Children’s Hospital. The roundup will begin at noon at the Beeville Livestock Commission, located at 2218 Hwy. 59 E.

A variety of products and services will be auctioned including items such as ranching supplies, baked goods, arts and crafts, gift cards, barbecue packages and hunter’s equipment. All of this year’s proceeds will go toward new medical equipment and other items for Driscoll Children’s Hospital. One hundred percent of funds raised will go towards the purchase of items such as medical equipment for the hospital – improving the lives of kids in South Texas.

The area 4-H clubs contribute a great deal of time and effort to ensure the success of this special tradition. The South Texas Cattlemen’s RoundUps showcase “Kids Helping Kids” and are a lesson in compassion and character for all children involved, Extension Office spokesmen said.

This “Show with a Heart” promises to be an event to be proud of, making miracles happen for all the children of South Texas, they added.
