DeFuniak Springs Police is proud to announce their 3rd Annual Rodeo and their partnering with the Boys & Girls Club of the Emerald Coast.

The event will feature barrel racing, bull riding, vendors and family fun. The rodeo will take place on Saturday, April 7, 2012 at 7 p.m. at the Walton County Fairgrounds in DeFuniak Springs Florida. Gates are schedule to open at 5:30 p.m.

The goal of the rodeo is to raise funds to help the Teen Center become self-sustaining. One of the successful attributes of Boys & Girls Clubs models across the country is the ability to operate through community donations and fundraisers. Each center is responsible for raising funds to pay for the operating expenses necessary to keep the club going. We encourage everyone to come out and support the local youth.

Sponsorship opportunities for the event are available at In-kind sponsorships and donations to help put on a successful event are also being sought. If you are interested in sponsoring this rodeo, please contact Ashley Sweeney at 850.585.2981 or
