On Thursday, July 2nd our team at the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre took part in another successful PBR Bull Bustin fundraiser for the SKCAC.
Professional bull riding legend Cody Snyder and his wife Rhonda put on an amazing event which featured Praied the world’s best bull riders competing ahead of the Calgary Stampede. This signature event was presented by our generous supporter Packers Plus.
We are extremely grateful to Packers Plus and Cody and Rhonda Snyder for choosing to support the Centre and raise funds on our behalf.
At the event, a Calcutta auction, a contest in which avid Bull Riding fans bid on a particular rider to win the championship, was won by Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre Board Member Melinda Park. Melinda has donated her winning prize of $17,500.00 back to the Sheldon Kennedy Child Advocacy Centre. This matched with the the Calcutta revenue generated $35,000.00. Thank you to Melinda for this amazing gift and act of generosity.
Thanks to Packers Plus, our sponsor made an incredibly generous donation of $15,000.00 to the Centre as well.
A 50-50 draw, also raised almost $1500.00 and will be partially matched by the Shaw Charity Classic.
