In a joint effort led by Iowa’s cattle producers and the Governor, many generous donors work together to bring comfort, hope, and healing to RMHC families through the Governor’s Charity Steer Show.
Historically the Governor’s Charity Steer Show brings together personalities in media, business, sports and government, to lead 1,300-pound steers in historic Pioneer Livestock Pavilion during the Iowa State Fair. Thousands of fairgoers flock to the event to not only root for their favorite celebrity, but also share their support for a worthy cause led by the Iowa cattle industry. This year in light of the pandemic the GCSS will be held at Iowa State University with an invitation only in person attendance and a virtural component so everyone can enjoy the event.
The worthy cause is charitable support for the three Iowa Chapters of the Ronald McDonald House Charities located in the state of Iowa.
