IOWA GOVERNOR'S CHARITY STEER SHOW

Benefiting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Iowa

August 10, 2024 | 4:30 p.m.

42nd Governor's Charity Steer Show will be held on August 10, 2024 during the Iowa State Fair

Continuing the tradition, the Iowa Governor’s Charity Steer Show is set for the 2024 Iowa State Fair. Join us for this year’s fundraising event benefiting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Iowa. Last year’s event raised $501,000 and  to date, the Iowa Governor’s Charity Steer Show has raised over $5.1 million since the event’s inception in 1983. 
 

All money raised benefits the three independent Ronald McDonald House Charities of Iowa, located in Des Moines, Iowa City, and Sioux City. These three houses have served over 55,000 families from all 50 states and 62 foreign countries. Families from all 99 counties in Iowa have benefited from the Ronald McDonald Houses of Iowa. 
 

This event, hosted by the Office of the Governor of Iowa, Iowa Cattlemen’s Association, and Iowa Beef Industry Council, is another example of the care the beef cattle industry has for our state, rural communities, and those in need. The youth exhibitors, their families, sponsors, celebrities, and buyers should be proud of their effort given to this year’s event. Their impact through volunteering, donations, and dedication created yet another successful show and fundraising outcome. 

 

Thank you to Governor Kim Reynolds for her continued dedication to this event and for her partnership with Iowa beef cattle producers. This event is a rewarding and humbling experience for all that participate. While the financial results are exceptional, the connection our participants, their families, and volunteers experience to the bigger picture of service the Iowa Governor’s Charity Steer Show offers to fellow Iowans and beyond is monumental.
