The 25th Annual South Texas Cattlemen’s Roundup to benefit Driscoll Children’s Hospital was held Monday, June 24, at the LOC auction barn.

The annual event takes place in seven different counties throughout the children’s hospital service area. The events are held at the local cattle auction barns.

LOC 4-H clubs, FFA chapters, county extension agents, local businesses and residents participated by donating goods and services that were auctioned off to benefit Driscoll.

Students from LOC county clubs and chapters assisted with the auction by parading the items during the auctions for buyers to view.

In 2012, the auction from LOC netted $67,000 of the total $199,000 collected during the seven-county event.

The event was sponsored by Lyssy & Eckels Feeds in George West.

The next roundup is scheduled for Beeville on Friday, June 28, at the Beeville Livestock Commission.
