A New, Charitable Tradition

The inaugural Dean’s Charity Steer Show, benefiting Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of Central Ohio, brought together the community on July 30 to celebrate agriculture and support children and their families during difficult times.

Local celebrities were paired with Ohio 4-H families in an exhibition and livestock sale competition. More than 900 spectators attended the show, and nearly 8,000 watched it live on Facebook. Proceeds of $152,000 were donated to RMHC of Central Ohio. Save the date for next year: Aug. 4, 2020.
