The Ponoka 4-H Beef Club is raising money for Ponoka Hospital and Care Centre with raffle ticket sales of charity steer Bolt.

Local 4-H Beef clubs raise funds for Ponoka General Hospital

The Central 4-H Beef Club is raffling off charity steer Bolt to benefit the local hospital.

Each fall East Ponoka, West Ponoka and Central Ponoka 4-H Beef clubs purchase a steer to be fed throughout the winter and raffled off for charity at their annual show and sale.   Each club takes a turn in raising the charity steer and this year “Bolt”, the charity steer, a French Charolais/Polled Hereford Cross was raised by the Central Ponoka 4-H Beef Club at the Winter farm.

All three clubs will be selling raffle tickets at $5 each and there are only 1800 tickets available for sale.  The draw will take place at our annual show and sale at the Calnash Ag Event Centre barn on Tuesday, May 5 at approximately 5:30 p.m.

If you are the lucky winner of this finished steer, you will have the choice of having it butchered, cut and wrapped for your freezer (at your cost) or it will be taken to VJV Auction Market and you will receive fair market value for the sale of the steer.  (approximately $2,600).

This year’s proceeds will go to the Ponoka and District Health Foundation to purchase special medical equipment for the Ponoka General Hospital.

Tickets are available from any 4-H Beef member or leader.  You can also call Erin Fleck at 403-704-4552 and make arrangements to buy tickets as well.

On behalf of all of our 4-H Beef clubs, we sincerely thank the community for its support and we hope to see you at our show and sale May 4 and 5 at the Calnash Ag Event Centre barn.
