20th Anniversary of the Sheriff’s P.R.C.A. Rodeo
The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Rodeo is one of the few community events that bring together residents, business owners, city and county officials, and law enforcement for one purpose – strengthening community ties and creating just plain fun!
This year's event marked the 20th Anniversary of the Sheriff’s P.R.C.A Rodeo. The rodeo was held at the Glen Helen Regional Park during the fourth weekend in September. Over 28,000 people attended the three-day event, which provided a memorable experience for the community and all who participated. Several of the world’s top professional cowboys performed bareback and saddle bronc riding, bull riding, steer wrestling, tie-down roping, barrel racing, and team roping. Those in attendance enjoyed performances by Professional Rodeo Clown, JJ Harrison https://www.facebook.com/JJHarrison811
. This year’s specialty act, Trick Rider Madison McDonald https://www.magicinmotions.com/
, had fans on the edge of their seat as she raced around the arena on her horse at times, hanging on by her feet.
The success of the rodeo and the support from the sponsors has allowed nearly one-million dollars in donations over the past 20 years to be given back to the community. Proceeds from the event continue to support the youth in our community with the ultimate goal of developing them into responsible citizens.
Cash donations were given to the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, the Challenged Children’s Rodeo, Children’s Fund, the 4H Council of San Bernardino, Pacific Coast Junior Bull riders, California Junior Rodeo Association, Cal Poly Rodeo, California Circuit Finals Rodeo, AK Bucking Bulls, Loma Linda University Hospital for breast cancer research, Man Up Crusade, and various Sheriff’s Department Volunteer groups whose assistance is essential to the success of the rodeo.
Mark September 25th, 26th, and 27th on your calendars for next year’s 21st Annual Sheriff’s PRCA Rodeo that benefits the children of San Bernardino County.
