There is a very special event that we have been asked to be a part of at this year’s Wrangler National Finals Rodeo and we are honored to be able to be just a small part of the overall big picture. As many of you may remember, I have been involved with a fantastic organization called Western Wishes that kids with disabilities the chance to participate in some of their favorite rodeo events throughout the year. Each year I get to be a part of making a wish come true as I spend some time with them and give them a tour of the media room at the WNFR and take some time out to have dinner with them.
On December 6th at the South Point Hotel and Casino Western Wishes is having a special reception and reunion for anyone who has ever been involved with the Western Wishes organization. Along with the reception there will be a special private screening of the movie “8 Seconds” for those in attendance to watch together. Actors, rodeo queens, rodeo World Champions and some very special guests will be in attendance as well for an exclusive meet and greet opportunity for all the kids that will be joining in the festivities! The Rodeo Round Up team will bring you an exclusive story showcasing this very special event in the weeks following the conclusion of the 2015 WNFR.
Today we bring you this courtesy of the NFR Experience:
2007 — Trevor Brazile become the PRCA’s first triple crown winner since 1983 with another outstanding performance at the Wrangler NFR.
