Our generous Wrangler BFI Week supporters have allowed us to raise $214,400 over the past six years to help local charities!
This year, our annual BFI calcutta on March 31 will feature a custom Heel-O-Matic Bones dummy – the proceeds of which will benefit the Oklahoma chapter of Flags Of Honor. And you can bid even if you’re not in Guthrie! For the first time, calcutta teams and items can be bought online. Just register to bid at www.goldbucklehorsesale.com (scroll down to BFI Online Sale).
“We love their mission of ‘meeting sacrifice with hope’ by helping the families of not only the servicemen and women protecting our freedom, but also firefighters, police, paramedics and others who respond to emergencies,” said BFI co-owner Daren Peterson.
The charity has been awarding life-changing scholarships since 2007 to the families of America’s fallen or disabled military and first responders. It ranks in the top tier of our country’s charities because 91 percent of every dollar raised goes into the scholarships themselves.
The folded American flag represents the heavy price of freedom – but is also a symbol of hope and democracy. By bidding on the Bones on March 31, you’re letting the families of our national heroes know they haven’t been forgotten. Find out more by visiting FoldsOfHonor.org.
“I’ve had a little experience partnering with the PBR, but we’ve never really done anything with team roping,” said Folds Of Honor’s Brandon Baker of Oklahoma City, who expects one of the recipient families to attend the calcutta. “It’ll be fun.”
Doors open at 5 p.m. and the calcutta begins at 6 p.m. Central time at the Chicken Shack in Arcadia, Oklahoma – or bid online for this one-of-a-kind dummy.
