HALLETTSVILLE – On Tuesday, June 20, young 4-H members in Lavaca County and the Lavaca County Extension Office will team up for a great cause. The annual South Texas Cattlemen’s RoundUp benefiting Driscoll Children’s Hospital will begin at noon at the Hallettsville Livestock Commission, 140 S. Auction Ring Road.
Sponsored by Lyssy & Eckel Feeds, the Cattlemen’s RoundUps are grass-roots fundraisers held throughout Driscoll’s 31-county service area. Local 4-H clubs, Future Farmers of America chapters, county extension agents and businesses participate by donating goods and services to auction off for the hospital. Visitors will have their pick of homemade baked goods, handmade items, farm and ranch items, and more.
All of this year’s proceeds will go toward the building of the new, two-story 70,000-square-foot North Pavilion that will create a new Outpatient Surgery Center and modernize the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Driscoll Children’s Hospital.
To make a donation and support local 4-H students, go to www.driscollchildrens.org, call Driscoll at (361) 694-6419 or call the Lavaca County Extension Office at (361) 798-2221.
