As we say goodbye to 2020 and all the uncertainty that it brought into our lives, we now say Hola to 2021 and still are managing the uncertainties of daily living. Hopefully, we will all be able to settle into new routines and live our lives fully and without fear.
One part of our world that did not change in 2020, was the increasing need for C4H to grow and provide more meals. Even during the most disruptive year the world has seen in many generations, the constant need to eat did not go away. As Cowboys 4 Heroes surpassed providing our 1,000,000 meal; our partners continued to grow and had more needs last year than ever before and they continue to grow in 2021.
Like you, C4H is experiencing a lot of changes as we grow and adapt to serving our partners in new and creative ways. The first change is that our annual steer auction will have limited space and will not be open to the public. They will provide an online portal (more to come on this) where everyone can watch and participate. With this said C4H is planning to host a live auction watch party for those that want to participate. We will have a private area where we will be able to safely enjoy the auction. If you plan on attending please RSVP, so we will be able to plan.
Steer Auction Watch Party - Sunday, March 7. Starting at 1 PM

The Cowboys for Heroes 2021 Goal is to deliver 250,000 meals to our country’s heroes.
It is that time of year when Cowboys for Heroes determines our annual budget that will support our mission to facilitate meals to transitioning veterans & their families as well as the FFA/4H youth that have raised the steer. Even with the auction changes C4H is excited about this year’s auction, events, and especially your continued support of our heroes.
Two years ago, C4H established the “Cowboys for Heroes Challenge” which challenges you to commit to donate / fund raise $3,500. This commitment will purchase and process one steer raised by FFA and 4H Youth sold at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s Junior Commercial Steer Management & Feeding Contest Auction, March 7th.. Your acceptance of the “Challenge“ will guarantee two meals per day for three of our heroes as they seek to understand their new normal and return to their families.
If you do commit to the challenge, C4H will pre-register you as a buyer at the auction and have your bidder’s paddle. You may register your pledge form in your personal name, business, or as a buyer group. This will allow anyone that accepts the challenge to be able to verbally donate your steer at the auction to Cowboys for Heroes. There are multiple levels of donation and no amount is too small nor too large so please complete the attached form and indicate your commitment level for 2021. This is the only way for C4H to budget for steer purchases at the auction.
