Cowboy Auctioneer is so passionate about helping charities and reaching the unserved that Heath and his wife Tabitha started The Bless Foundation (theblessfoundation.org) in 2017, a Christian foundation focused on advancing the Gospel to unreached people groups. At their first annual Light The World event, they raised over $500,000 in a complete volunteer effort and distributed all proceeds to 5 beneficiary organizations serving the unreached.

MORE THAN A JOB

To us, this is more than a 9-5. Our ability to help incredible organizations advance their missions each year is our passion and we are blessed to be able to share that passion with each of these organizations. Each year, we donate our time and talent to a select group of organizations that are especially important to us.

FOSTER VILLAGE

We love to be a part of growth, especially when we see incredible potential in a necessary mission!

What a success! $150,000 was raised in the auction portion and the Village grew in so many ways. Foster Village comes alongside children and families in the welfare system and shows them that they are not alone by creating opportunities for the local community to be a "village" of support to these vulnerable and underserved children and families.
