    Josh Fromme, Arthur Luco and Trey Wimberley started The Bootleggers buyers group this year to create a pool of funds to divide equally among the children participating in the auction.

    There was a $200 buy-in, but contributors could donate as much as they wanted to.

    The total amount raised to be divided between the 48 project entries in the auction was $14,100.

    "Next year, we're planning to divide the money between all the children, even those who didn't make it into the livestock show," said John Friedrichs, a member of the Bootleggers.
