Today through Sunday, proceeds go toward Battle Mountain High School’s Future Business Leaders of America; Bright Future Foundation’s Buddy Mentors Program; and Samaritan Center of the Rockies.
Tickets will be available at the rodeo grounds for $30.
Bright Future’s Buddy Mentors Program recruits volunteers to be matched with local youth in need of a caring adult mentor. Samaritan Center of the Rockies provides support for families as well as youth. Future Business Leaders of America students learn and practice real-world business skills.
Local dancers attend classes in New York ranging from ballet to Broadway.
