The Austin County Fair’s Youth Auction Sale will start at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 11.
The Youth Auction Sale raises money for the exhibitors. Last year, the sale raised over $1.4 million for the youths of Austin County.
Another way the community can contribute is through the Add-On program. Many people can’t purchase an exhibit, but still want to help the children of their families, friends and business associates. The Austin County Fair offers an Add-On option. A buyer can select to “Add-On” any amount to one of the exhibitors in the Youth Auction Sale.
The form can be found on the fair website at www.austincountyfair.com under the Events tab and Livestock Show/Results/Add-Ons button. This program has grown over the years into a very significant portion of our Youth Auction Sale total.
