Make plans now to attend the 7th annual
Pink for Peitz Benefit Rodeo on Friday, August 11 and Saturday, August 12 at the Saddle Club Arena
in Mountain Home! Presented by Tough Enough to Wear Pink sponsored by
Wrangler, Arkansas Family Rodeo/Rand Rodeo Company, and the Chicks-n-Spurs
Drill Team, the 2017 Pink for Peitz Rodeo benefits Baxter Regional Medical
Center's Peitz Cancer Support House, which provides free, comprehensive
support services to cancer patients and their families.
The rodeo will include popular events such as barrel racing, bull riding,
bronc riding, and calf roping. The Chicks-n-Spurs Drill Team will perform
at the rodeo and each evening there will be a Breast Cancer Survivors’
Ceremony. Any breast cancer survivor who wishes to participate in the
ceremony, please contact the Peitz House at (870) 508-CARE (2273). In
addition to the rodeo events, the community will be able to support the
Peitz Cancer Support House by participating in a Pink Jail Fundraiser,
a silent auction, and a 50/50 split drawing at the event.
There will also be carousel pony rides provided by Bar None Cowboy Church
starting at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and tug of war contests on Saturday
beginning at 6:15 p.m. The Troy Farnam Band will be performing at the
event on Friday, August 11 at 6 p.m.
Tickets are available in advance at the
Peitz Cancer Support House for $5 each. Tickets purchased on the day of the event will be $8 for adults,
$5 for children ages 5-12, and children under 5 are free.
Another way that the public can support the cause is by purchasing a raffle
ticket for one of three different custom belt buckles designed for the
Pink for Peitz Rodeo. The raffle tickets are available now for $5 per
ticket at the Peitz Cancer Support House in Mountain Home and will also
be sold at the event. Proceeds from the raffle ticket sales will benefit
the Peitz Cancer Support House.
