Cowboy Kicks fundraiser with Brett Kissel in Red Deer is rescheduled for March

A fundraiser for the Canadian Pro Rodeo Sports Medicine Team and Westerner Park, featuring country singer Brett Kissel, has been re-scheduled to next spring.

The launch of Cowboy Kicks has been moved to March 18 at the Peavey Mart Centrium.

Uniquely Western, Cowboy Kicks is a fundraising experience described as “arts meets west.”

Packages featuring one-of-a-kind experiences and 4-feet high fibreglass cowboy boots, hand-painted by Albertan artists, will be auctioned off.

There will also be 2-feet high hand-painted fibreglass boots featured in the charity auction and a raffle. Guests will be treated to a hearty, western meal while enjoying an intimate performance from special guest Kissel.

A limited quantity of tickets are available through Tickets Alberta. (The Restrictions Exemption Program, requiring proof of vaccinations, a negative COVID-19 PCR test, or medical exemption will apply at the Centrium).

Cowboy Kicks is a major annual fundraiser for the Westerner Foundation and the Canadian Pro Rodeo Sport Medicine Team. The team is a volunteer-led team composed of athletic therapists, massage therapists, chiropractors, sport medicine physicians, orthopaedic surgeons, psychologists and counsellors.

The Canadian Pro Rodeo Sport Medicine Team helps athletes in their rodeo careers by providing pre-event care and treatment, acute injury arena coverage, crisis control and post-event care and follow up. On average, the team works over 175 performances per season, including Canadian Pro Rodeo Association, Professional Bullriders events and Calgary Stampede Rodeo and Chuckwagons.
