This month’s message from me is a little longer than most, but this is a story I just must share. A couple of weeks ago, our campaign director, Angela Lieurance, got a call from Chuck Sylvester, a National Western icon. Chuck was calling with some very good news: Ernie Fischer, a friend and former National Western colleague had reached out about donating a bison to the 2019 Stock Show Bison sale, with the proceeds going to the campaign.
Ernie and his wife Beverly own Fischer’s Bar 33 Ranch outside of Bismarck, N.D. Angela had a chance to catch up with Ernie and asked him what motivated his generosity. His answer was simple: “The seed was set more than 20 years ago, and we are in a giving mood, and there is a need now to help the National Western.”
