Description

The Tucson Chapter of Chicks n Chaps™ will host its 10th Annual Women's Rodeo Clinic, Bulls, Broncs, Barrels, and Bling on Sunday, February 19, 2023 in conjunction with the 98th Annual Fiesta de los Vaqueros Tucson Rodeo.  

 

To date, our 501 (c)3 non-profit organization has raised over $79, 000 for LOCAL breast cancer support. These funds provide treatments, much needed supplies, and support through Arizona Oncology Foundation to patients and their loved ones in Southern Arizona suffering from this awful disease. ALL OF THE MONEY WE RAISE STAYS RIGHT HERE IN SOUTHERN ARIZONA AND GOES DIRECTLY TO PATIENTS!

 

To celebrate ten years of Chicks n Chaps at the Tucson Rodeo we are excited to move to a new larger venue!  This year's event will be held in the Coors Barn.  More room means more exciting clinics.  We will be looking at Bulls, Broncs and Barrels in depth.  Why does that saddle bronc ride look so spectacular and scary and then score so low?  Why is there a "clown" in the middle of the bull riding?  What makes a barrel horse different from the rest? Of course we will still have our "Many Shades of Pink" stories to share and inspire you..

 

How you attend is your call.   Only have the morning available?  Register for the clinic, you'll be done by 1:00 p.m.  Included with your registration is parking, brunch, rodeo clinics, a t-shirt, and a gift bag.

 

Busy in the morning but still want to be a part of this amazing event?  Buy a ticket to watch the rodeo in the Chick Pit! Skip our clinics and spend your afternoon cheering on the cowboys and cowgirls all while supporting Chicks n Chaps and Arizona Oncology Foundation. 

 

Or do both!!  The choice is yours!!

 

Chicks n Chaps™ is for EVERYONE! So gals and guys, cowgirls, cowboys, and city folk alike, come join us as we look behind the chutes at the sport of rodeo and support a great cause.

Since 2013, in conjunction with Tucson’s oldest tradition, the La Fiesta de Los Vaqueros Tucson Rodeo, during “Pink Day”, our all-volunteer committee and volunteers host our signature event, a “Behind the Chutes” VIP rodeo clinics experience! 

 

“Pink Day” is always the first Sunday of the rodeo and is set aside to honor all those who have dealt with breast cancer. Wear nothing but pink and join us for a day of interactive educational clinics, fashion show, silent auction, raffle, keynote speakers, Chuckwagon brunch, and a day of rodeo in the “Chick Pit”! 

 

Everyone can have fun learning all about rodeo and the Western lifestyle in a positive and supportive atmosphere, all the while raising funds and awareness that benefit local breast cancer patients and their families!
