Annual 4H scholarship auction to take place at LaBelle Rodeo Grounds

The “Male Celebrity “cake auction will take place on Wednesday, February 14th at the LaBelle Rodeo Grounds at 6 pm. Please come out and give your support to raise money for the Pro Steadman 4-H Scholarship Fund. There will be a silent cake auction along with a live cake auction. This scholarship awards two $1000 scholarships to two high school students and a $1000 scholarship to one college student.

The Pro Steadman Scholarship Fund started in 1990 as a community project in honor of Mrs. Pro Steadman. “Pro” was the mother of five 4-H’ers, a leader for ten years, and was very active in all sectors of the 4-H program. She believed in the 4-H organization and seeing it reach its full potential for bringing families together and keeping members interested in worthwhile projects. Mrs. Steadman was diagnosed with ALS (commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) in May of 1988. Throughout her struggle with the disease, she maintained her interest and involvement in youth programs as much as she physically could. She died in December of 1992, but still lives on in the hearts of the many that she influenced.

For more information, please contact the 4-H Office at 863-674-4092 or 863-983-1598.
