Friends, particularly those from the Iron River or rodeo communities, just a day ago the 48th U.P. Championship rodeo was in mortal danger. Friends of the rodeo and of Iron County have rallied together to raise the necessary monetary and manpower resources. Please give thoughtful consideration to the value of this event to our home town and how you might help sustain this tradition: 1) like the FB page U.P. Rodeo, 2) Buy your 2015 tickets now — buy extras that will be contributed to local charitable organizations. 3) Donate what you can. There are corporate sponsors waiting in the wings to see if there is genuine support for this event. 3) attend tonight’s community meeting at the Iron River V.F.W, and join a sub-committee that fits you gifts and talents.

The 2015 U.P. Rodeo is moving forward! As the momentum builds, your help is needed. There is an immediate need to raise $35,000. There are business sponsors waiting in the wings who are willing to cover a significant portion of this – if they see a genuine effort to help from fans and the community. Here are two opportunities to get behind this effort:
1) Purchase your rodeo tickets now, right now (you will receive a receipt and your tickets will be held at the gate for you). And then purchase more tickets, which will be donated to the following Iron County charitable organizations- Kinship of Iron County, Northpointe Behavioral Healthcare’s Boyington Place and the Iron County Cancer Unit. Contact information for those organizations is available up request. Follow this link to support the 2015 U.P. Championship Rodeo now:
