Thank you donors to the Bleacher Fund!

Category: Uncategorized

Just wanted to share a big huge THANK YOU to all those who have donated to funding of the bleachers! The bleachers were purchased in 2020 for just over $412,000, with another [just under] $59,000 in construction/excavation prep work for a total of under under half a million dollars. The majority of donations came that first year, and the Board was able to secure a loan for the balance at $310,000. Many more donations were received due to the 2020 “No Go Rodeo” campaign because of the COVID-19 pandemic. All of you attending the past few years’ rodeos who have left a tip in the jars at the Cook Shack or Beer Gardens have also contributed to our semi-annual payments on the loan for the remaining balance. We couldn’t do it without you!
