KISSIMMEE, FL – (April 18, 2012): During the 128th Silver Spurs Rodeo’s Tough Enough to Wear Pink night, $4,805 was raised to benefit the Florida Hospital Cancer Center in efforts to buck cancer.
Rodeo fans, contestants and event volunteers were encouraged to wear pink to show their support during Friday night’s performance. The Silver Spurs gave support to cancer research through a program designated by the PRCA (Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association) called “Tough Enough to Wear Pink.”
“This was our 5th year participating within the PRCA’s Tough Enough to Wear Pink, we were so excited and grateful to raise money for such a worthy cause,” says Ricky Booth, Big Boss for the Silver Spurs. “Last year we were fortunate to donate $3,000, and this year we were proud to be able to increase our donation,” Booth continues.
The Silver Spurs Riding Club, a non-profit organization, is a volunteer based Osceola County tradition since 1942. Club members dedicate endless hours to club events such as the bi-annual Silver Spurs Rodeo of Champions.
