North Dakota Stockmen’s Foundation welcomes three new directors
The North Dakota Stockmen’s Foundation will host its biennial fundraiser, the Stockmen’s Ball, on Saturday, Dec. 11, at the Ramkota in Bismarck.
Three state cattle industry leaders have been named to the North Dakota Stockmen’s Foundation Board of Directors.
Teresa Dvorak of Manning, N.D., Jerry Effertz of Velva, N.D., and Wendy Stuber of Bowman, N.D., were recently appointed as directors of the 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
Established in 2008, the NDSF works to provide hope and opportunity for the state’s cattle industry in this and future generations through scholarship, leadership, promotion, research, building and disaster relief objectives.
“We are excited to welcome Teresa, Jerry and Wendy to the board,” said NDSF President Dan Rorvig, a McVille, N.D., rancher. “Their vast industry and community service experience and vision will be perfect complements to our group and will help the Stockmen’s Foundation accomplish its mission.”
The trio will fill the vacancies of Jeff Dahl of Gackle, N.D., Renee Erickson of Dickinson, N.D., and Mark Huseth of McLeod, N.D. Each completed three two-year terms on the NDSF board and was no longer eligible for re-appointment.
The NDSF will host its biennial fundraiser, the Stockmen’s Ball, on Saturday, Dec. 11, at the Ramkota in Bismarck. The event will include live and silent auctions, a prime rib supper, games and dancing to live music. Tickets are $100 each and can be purchased by calling (701) 223-2522. Only advanced tickets will be sold.
