Together they steered toward the good.
The first-ever Dean’s Charity Steer Show—hosted by CFAES Dean Cathann A. Kress and featuring 13 teams of celebrities, 4-H members, and the 4-H members’ bovine charges—raised $152,000 (and counting) for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio.
The charity, among its services, provides housing for families of children being treated at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus.
