The South Dakota Cattlemen’s Foundation presented a check for $228,602 to Feeding South Dakota on Saturday night during the Prime Time Gala & Concert at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center. This amount exceeded their original pledge amount of $150,000. Over 1,600 guests attended the fifth annual gala that also included a silent and live auction as well as a raffle of a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Duramax from Billion Chevrolet. During the gala, a total of $15,000 in scholarships was awarded to five students attending South Dakota schools interested in the improvement of beef production and promotion to aid in their education. After the gala concluded, the night was highlighted with a country music concert at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center with Diamond Rio, Tracy Lawrence and headliner, Justin Moore.
