Charity rodeo hits Dell’Osso Family Farms

The California Cowboys Professional Rodeo Association is teaming up with the Give Every Child A Chance organization for the third annual Xtreme Bulls and Broncs Rodeo on the River. Funds are being raised to help support the free mentor/tutoring programs offered through Give Every Child A Chance to help students attending schools in the South San Joaquin County area, through after school programs and other initiatives.

The CCPRA invades Dell’Osso Farms in Lathrop June 7 and 8. The two day action-packed weekend will include intense saddle bronc, bareback and bull riding competition. The CCPRA will award the winning competitors with cash prizes and a variety of buckles. Like most rodeos, will take courage, perseverance – and even a little luck – to take the final prize and walk away from the event as number one.

Activities are being planned for the entire family to enjoy the sights, tastes and sounds of the Central Valley through the rodeo event, with food and vendor booths, a petting zoo and more. Gates open at noon both days with rodeo opening ceremonies beginning at 2 p.m. on Saturday with the most action packed eight seconds in all of sports – bull riding – to begin immediately following, in addition to saddle bronc and bareback events. The CCPRA rodeo continues Sunday with action also beginning at 2 p.m.

Parking is free. Ticket prices are $20 per adult, $15 for children ages 5-12, and $15 for senior citizens. Take advantage of their Family Pack deal that consists of two adult and two children tickets for just $55, a savings of $15.

Whether you live in the Central Valley or are just a short drive away, come out to Lathrop and enjoy CCPRA action and help local students succeed in school with assistance from Give Every Child A Chance. It’s a win-win, a family fun event for a great cause.
