A Stock Show event is providing an excellent opportunity to give a little assistance to their fellow ranchers.
A benefit auction was held Wednesday in Rushmore Hall with 100% of the proceeds going to the Rancher's Relief Fund.
Everything from western themed artwork, speciality guns, even ranching equipment were put up for bid.
Executive Director of the South Dakota Stock Growers Association Silvia Christen says the auction gives people the chance to help out those most impacted by the October storm, "I think at a time of the stock show when we are really celebrating the ranching heritage, celebrating the ranchers out here and coming into town and enjoy that a little bit. It's important to remember what we've been through because its generally a pretty good mood around here but it's been a tough year for these producers.
Christen says that the ranchers relief fund has raised and dispersed more than 4 million to area ranchers.
