Fundraiser raises money for Westerner Foundation

Country music star Brett Kissel is coming to Red Deer this fall.

Cowboy Kicks event, a major fundraiser for Westerner Park and the Canadian Pro Rodeo Sport Medicine Team, has partnered with MNP this September.

Uniquely Western, Cowboy Kicks is a fundraising experience where arts meets west. Through an exciting live auction, six packages featuring one-of-a-kind experiences and 1.2-metre high fibreglass cowboy boots, hand-painted by Albertan artists, will be auctioned off. There will also be 60-cm high, hand-painted fibreglass boots featured in the charity auction and a raffle.

“We are thrilled to team up with MNP on our inaugural event to raise funds for the Westerner Foundation and the volunteer-led Canadian Pro Rodeo Sport Medicine Team,” said Cowboy Kicks chair Kathy Lacey. “Thanks to MNP’s support, event attendees will enjoy an intimate performance by our special guest — JUNO and CCMA award-winning country singer Brett Kissel.”

Guests at the event will be treated to a hearty, western meal and beverage while enjoying an intimate performance from special guest Brett Kissel.

“The Cowboy Kicks event is sure to be a unique and fun way to bring the knowledge and spirit of rodeo to the people of Red Deer and surrounding area while raising money for some great causes,” said Brandon Thome, executive director of the Canadian Pro Rodeo Sport Medicine Team. “These funds will help to offset costs incurred from the stoppage of rodeo and our team during the pandemic, such as taping and medical supplies that had already been purchased and upkeep and maintenance of our mobile treatment trailers and vehicles.”

Tickets for the September 18 event will be be on sale starting at 10 a.m. on July 12 through Tickets Alberta at ticketsalberta.ca.
