Amarillo, TX - The annual Wiley Hicks Junior Memorial Roping Competition kicked off Saturday in Amarillo with hundreds of people in attendance.
The two-day event is held at the Amarillo Tri-State Fairgrounds and has rodeo events for both kids and adults.
This is the second year in a row that the event will be a world series qualifier. People from all over come every year to show their support and it all benefits our local Make-A-Wish Foundation.
"The average cost of a wish is $7,000, so the money raised from this will go to granting more wishes," Randi Hudson with Make-A-Wish Foundation said. "Last year, we raised a little over $57,000 dollars. So with that being said, we've been able to grant eight wishes just from that alone."
