Since 1983, the beef industry has raised funds for the Ronald McDonald House Charities in Des Moines, Iowa City and Sioux City The houses provide a "home away from home" for families of seriously ill children being treated in area hospitals and have served nearly 48,000 families.
During the competition, celebrities will lead 25 steers around the ring, vying for the championship designation, showmanship honors, and the People’s Choice award. Then, the steers will be sold at auction with proceeds going to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Iowa. Both the show ring event and the auction are open to the general public.
NEARLY 48,000 FAMILIES SERVED
$3.8 MILLION RAISED SINCE 1983
