Bright Future Foundation’s clients, families and Buddy Mentors Program participants were treated to a one-of-a-kind fair and rodeo experience, courtesy of the Eagle County Fair and Rodeo’s Saddle Up Program.
Clients received an invitation to attend the rodeo for free on their choice of Wednesday, July 19 or Thursday, July 20, and attended a special barbecue for friends and supporters featuring a private walk-through of the livestock exhibits and fair midway. Rodeo performers, royalty from the Eagle County Fair & Rodeo and Beaver Creek Rodeo, Miss Rodeo America and Miss Rodeo Colorado hosted a meet-and greet. A few of the attending youngsters were thrilled to be asked to autograph posters for the royalty!
The Fair and Rodeo partners with a different nonprofit each year as part of Saddle Up. The public can support this program by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org to make a donation.
