The Texas County Fair Board has received a donation of $3,500 from the MFA Inc. Charitable Foundation.
MFA Houston store manager Darrell Scheets and MFA district manager Darren Scheets presented a check to fair board president Darren Ice during the non-profit organization’s annual fall fundraiser dinner and auction last Saturday night in the livestock showing arena at the Houston Area Chamber of Commerce Fairgrounds.
Ice said the dinner and auction raised more than $5,000. He said plans for all the funds include purchasing weigh-in scales and construction of a roof over the weigh-in area.
“We’d really like to thank MFA and everyone who attended our dinner, and all the people who donated items to the auction or bought things during the sale,” Ice said. “We’re really happy with the result.”
