At the 2018 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, the Round-Up teamed up with Las Vegas Events, Santa Maria (Calif.) Elks Rodeo and the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) to honor twenty children fighting life-threatening diseases, and their families.
A Northern California child, Takota McAllister, was among the twenty children who were honored at the Golden Circle of Champions Banquet in Las Vegas on Sunday, Dec. 9, 2018. The children had the opportunity to eat lunch with rodeo champions, receive special gifts, and learn about the rodeo. That evening, the children and their families attend the Wrangler NFR.
The Golden Circle of Champions was founded three years ago in conjunction with the Santa Maria Elks Rodeo Through donations and fundraising efforts, support is provided directly to the families to help with financial needs, such as paying bills and purchasing medication.
This year, Colby Arnett will be honored at the 2019 Golden Circle of Champions Banquet in Las Vegas. Him, as well as his family will have a first class experience at the WNFR.
