FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Chicks n Chaps™ Women’s Rodeo Clinic, sponsored by Wrangler, is pleased to announce their events have raised over $100,000 in 2012.
Chicks n Chaps™ began in 2008 in Missoula MT and has been received as a very popular event for women interested in learning more about the sport of rodeo, while also raising awareness and funding for Tough Enough to Wear Pink and
individuals fighting breast cancer.
Since 2008, Chicks n Chaps™ has expanded across 5 states including Montana, Idaho, Washington, California & Oklahoma holding clinics at PRCA rodeos. From 2008 to present, Chicks n Chaps™ has raised over $330,000 and is also the Official Women’s Rodeo Clinic of Tough Enough to Wear Pink.
Staci Flynn, Co-President of Chicks n Chaps™ said she is amazed at how fast the nonprofit has grown and how well it is received by rodeo’s and women alike. “A lot of women that come to our clinics have never been to a rodeo before, so it’s very gratifying to know that we are promoting the sport of rodeo while also doing what is really important, raising money for education, mammograms and individuals affected by breast cancer”.
