Rodeo event proceeds add up to $20,000 scholarships for 10

By Mary Alys Cherry

Few events are more fun than the NASA Clear Creek Rodeo events, and besides all the enjoyment, there are even more benefits from the proceeds of each rodeo event in the form of scholarships won by Bay Area students.

While we were all having such a great time at this past winter’s events, we raised nearly $104,000 – which means that this year 10 graduating seniors are attending college on the $20,000 scholarship they were awarded.

The popular “Rodeo Fashion Show” brought in the most money, $31,839.85 after expenses, with the bus trip close behind at $29,205.17, Bay Area Go Texan Captain Anita White tells us. Here are the totals, followed by the scholarship recipients in both school districts.

Casino Night : $9,163
Ghost & Goblins Who Cook: $8,536
Fashion Show: $31,839.85
Bus Trip: $29,205.17
Donor Program: $25,000
Total: $103,744.02
