What's a special you may ask? These are cash pay outs for the 1st-5th placing animals in each class in Open, and 1st-3rd in each class in Youth. You can designate what class your money is applied to, or ask us to apply it to classes of need (AKA general). The more donations we receive, the more money can be paid out!
We were able to generate a total of $920.00 in specials which reulted in payouts for every class! $705.00 for Open & $215.00 for Youth.
And a BIG thank you to the following for their Specials donations!
Silent Auction Details
