Governor’s Steer Show
at the Iowa State Fair
Since its inception in 1983, the Governor’s Charity Steer Show has generated over $3.2 million (equivalent to over 270,000 nights stays) in support of Iowa’s three Ronald McDonald House chapters. During that same time, more than 44,237 Iowa families have been served. Additionally, another 8,000 families coming from all 50 states and more than 60 foreign countries have used the Iowa facilities. Records were broken at the 35th annual Governor’s Charity Steer Show, which raised over $274,000 for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Iowa. This year’s event featured the highest selling auction, including breaking the cumulative $3 million mark. The money raised benefits the Ronald McDonald Houses of Des Moines, Iowa City, and Sioux City. All of the houses are located near hospitals and provide a place to stay for families of seriously ill children. The Iowa Beef Industry Council and the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association sponsor the annual steer show and auction, which will be hosted by Governor Kim Reynolds on August 10, 2019 in the Pioneer Livestock Pavilion at the Iowa State Fair. THANK YOU! for your support of the Governor’s Charity Steer Show and your support of the three Ronald McDonald House Charities, including RMHC of Siouxland.
