Floyd Pierce donned an apron that his daughter, Misty Houston, made from T-shirts left over from a fund-raiser and displays a small quilt made from similar T-shirts.

These are just a few of the many, items to be auctioned off at the Stephenville Cattle Company to aid local recipients of the West Texas Rehab Center in Abilene. Troy and Cheryl Moore, owners of SCC, have been hosting this benefit auction since 1979 with help from those interested in helping those less fortunate.

Each year the Round-up brings in thousands of dollars that are needed to give crippled and disabled children a second chance.

“We started this Cattlemen's Round-up because we could see that the money collected was going to help local folks, Troy Moore said. “We sell everything that is brought in - cattle, horses, emus, pigs, paintings, baked goods, blankets, whatever people want to give, we'll try to get bids on.

“We need helpers to make this a big success, Cheryl Moore added. “We need people to gather merchandise, donate items, and then we need folks to come out and buy.
