Roma riders gear up for Charity Rodeo

RODEO: Once again the hugely popular Roma Charity Rodeo is about to kick up some dust on September 24, a fantastic event that always attracts a huge crowd and great competitors.

In previous years the rodeo, run by the not-for-profit organisation Maranoa Team Penning, has donated up to $7000 to CareFlight, but this year things will be a little different.

LifeFlight will still receive funding but the committee has also put out the call for any sporting clubs and organisations needing funding to send in a letter stating what they need, why and how much funding they are hoping for.

They have received quite a few applications so far but want to remind everyone that applications close on July 31.

As the charity rodeo is run by a non for profit organisation they have, over the years, relied heavily on funding and sponsorship from the region’s many businesses to help with the prizemoney for each event.

This year they are in need of help to attract the necessary sponsorships required to run the event successfully.

If your business would like to be part of this great event, the committee would love to hear from you. All donations received would be greatly appreciated.

If you would like sponsor an event, phone the president on 0428 234 467.
