Broads N Boots
BOOT N BROADS 2011
2011 was another successful year for the annual “Boots N Broads” and Tough Enough to Wear Pink at the Gooding Pro Rodeo. Activities began at 11:00 am with the annual luncheon of flank steak salad and washed down with Coors beer and Purple Cowboy wine. Following the meal, bras that had been decorated by various groups were auctioned off to the highest bidder. The bra auction alone brought in over $4200.00. The festivities continued into the rodeo where many of the TETWP bras were modeled on the outside of their clothing by several in the crowd and even in the arena where they were worn by both of the Pink Sombrero’d pickup men Bobby Marriott and Casey Brunson. Sabala Farms added to the excitement by picking a cowboy in each event and if that cowboy won the round and were wearing pink, their farm donated $100 to the cause. If a cowboy won the round and was not on the Sabala team but were wearing pink, the farm still donated $50.
Along with the bra auction, & Ladies Luncheon, cancer survivors were introduced into the arena each holding pink balloons that were purchased in remembrance of loved ones lost to cancer. As the wagon left the arena, the balloons were let loose into the clear rodeo night. The total dollars that was donated to the Hospital Foundation was over $6000. Make sure not to miss out in 2012 for this very worthwhile cause.
