The Dewberry Agricultural Society is a small organization with a very dedicated group of volunteers that help to ensure the success of the Heifer Lottery fundraiser. The money raised will be going towards the continued success of the arena facility in Dewberry.

The seventh annual Heifer Lottery has a prize of 20 Bred Heifers or $40,000 cash, one subsidiary prize of $5,000, and five subsidiary prizes of $1,000 and, a 50/50 cash draw with a current amount of $7,500 and growing daily. The draw date will be August 23, 2021 at the Cornerstone Co-op in Dewberry.

“We could not do it without the expertise so willingly provided from each of those volunteers. This community-minded attitude continues to allow us to put every dollar of profit raised back into the arena facility. The last year has been very challenging as far as fundraising goes, so we are very appreciative that folks continue to search us out and support us,” said Holly Holmen, member of the Dewberry Agricultural Society.

You can get your tickets from any of the following options: From any Agriculture Member, at most businesses in Dewberry and several in Vermilion, online at dewberryagsociety.com, email dewberryheiferlotto@gmail.com, or call or text (780)-871-3677.

“A huge Thank You goes out to Bruce and Darlene Goldsmith and their entire family for their contribution to the success of this cause. Their support of this arena facility began a generation ago when Giggs Goldsmith signed on as one of the founding members of the Dewberry and District Agricultural Society. The families support continues on with the fourth generation now able to skate at the Dewberry Arena due to the financial and personal commitment of the Goldsmith family,” said Holmen.
