Bronc riders raise money for working ranchers

Amarillo, TX - Thousands of area residents showed support today for working cowboys and their families.

The working ranch cowboys association kicked off a new fund raiser, the Championship Ranch Bronc Riding at the Will Rogers Range Riders outdoor arena.

Forty of the best ranch cowboys are riding some of the wildest broncos to compete for a minimum of $15,000.

There's also a women's division with ten participants.  Proceeds go to the working ranch cowboys foundation.

"The foundation helps kids go to college, as well as, we help in crisis situations.  When a ranch family has a serious need we come in with assistance and try to help fund that," The Working Ranch Cowboys Association Manager Mandy Morton said.
