WSRRA Cowboy Crisis Foundation
The Western State Ranch Rodeo Association’s Cowboy Crisis Fund gives back to members and their families. At the first WSRRA National Finals, held in 2010 at the Winnemucca Event Center in Winnemucca, Nevada, the WSRRA Cowboy Crisis Fund was started.
Each year at the National Finals, a silent auction is held to raise money for the crisis fund. Donated items have included framed photographs, posters and prints, jewelry, tack, horses, western decor, gift certificates and much more. In 2019 $18,000 was raised for the recipients.
One-hundred percent of the proceeds go to the crisis fund.
