Join us for the 55th Annual Cattle Auction benefiting the Children's Home on Saturday, September 7 at 6:00pm at the Peoria Civic Center...  wtih country music star Aileeah Colgan as the musical guest for the evening!  The Cattle Auction is an annual event that includes a silent auction with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, a fabulous dinner, live auction, entertainment and, of course, the cattle auction. 


In 1956, a group of Peoria area citizens met to propose plans for a home for troubled boys. What started as a dream by a few dedicated people with a vision became a reality in 1960 when Youth Farm first opened its doors. In August of 2007, Youth Farm merged with Children’s Home. The combined histories and like missions of both agencies have strengthened the services available to the children and families in our community. The first Cattle Auction took place in 1964 and raised $4,000. This event continues today, raising over $100,000 each year to help support the 1,700 kids and families Children's Home serves each month.
