Tucson Chicks N Chaps Ready for 4th Annual Behind the Chutes Rodeo Event

Day at the rodeo supports local breast cancer services and care

debbie-and-our-guest-cowboysEach year across the United States, Chicks N Chaps™ events are held at local rodeos across the west. Last year, the organization donated over $1 million to community programs. All of the money raised in a host community remains in that community. These events bring together thousands of women (and men!) from all different walks, many of whom have never seen a horse, a cowboy or felt the rush of watching someone ride a two thousand pound animal, to learn about rodeo. Chicks N Chaps™ attendees about the incredible sport of rodeo, the athleticism of horse and riders and the community spirit that comes from knowing you’re helping fighters and survivors in your community.

2017 Behind the Chutes

The Tucson Chapter of Chicks n Chaps™ will host its 4th Women’s Rodeo Cli2016-chk-presentationnic on Sunday, Feb. 19 in conjunction with the 92nd Annual Fiesta de los Vaqueros Tucson Rodeo. The event will raise funds to benefit breast patients through the Arizona Oncology Foundation.

    Is there a telephone number I can call for more information? I think I am a bit too old to participate in the clinic itself, but I would like to participate in an ancillary position.

    • Nobody is too old! Roping Steers and Riding Broncos are not required! Guests walk through the clinics to learn about rodeo events, followed by a champagne brunch and a day on the bleachers watching the show. For more info, call 520-300-1089.

        Thank you for the information. We live in Virginia and will be visiting family during rodeo week. We have tickets for Thursday and the Sunday event caught my interest. You’re never too old for champagne!
