Thursday is Dollar Night at rodeo

June 15, 2011

Great things often happen during the Big Spring Cowboy Reunion and Rodeo.

This year, the volunteers who produce the annual event have designated opening night as a way to give back — to the fans who make the rodeo a success and to the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund, an endowment that offers financial assistance for contestants sidelined due to injury.

"We're going to have Thursday be our Dollar Night in memory of Skipper Driver," said Ace Berry, president of the rodeo committee. "The Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund was very important to Skipper, so we wanted to do something to honor that. We're going to take every dollar we get from the gate admission and donate it to the Crisis Fund."

Admission Thursday is $1 per person.
