RED BLUFF, Calif. -- Area cattle groups' annual winter dinner and auction here Jan. 6 raised more than $18,000 for scholarships for 10 high school and college-bound students.

The event, sponsored by the Tehama County Cattlemen's and CattleWomen's associations, included a prime-rib dinner and an auction of such donated prizes as a trip for two to the 2012 National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas and numerous truckloads of livestock feed and supplements.

"People are very, very generous with their donations, and they're very generous in buying the items," said Cathy Tobin, co-chair of the event.

About 400 people attended the event, which is held each year at the fairgrounds here.
