Fair and Stampede Supporters Help Stamp Out Breast Cancer

PORT ORCHARD, WAŚAre you tough enough to wear pink? The Kitsap County Fair and Stampede and its supporters are asking this question at this year's rodeo to help raise awareness and money to find a cure for breast cancer.

On Friday, August 25, you can show your support by wearing pink during the rodeo performance, purchasing a Tough Enough To Wear Pink balloon and purchasing an arena floor ticket.

The Kitsap Rodeo Cowpokes Committee will be donating $100 for each contestant who wears pink that night and wins their event. The balloons purchased before the rodeo will all be released simultaneously at the start of the event. One dollar from each arena floor ticket will also be donated to the Puget Sound affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

The Kitsap Rodeo Cowpokes, Wranglers and Buckle Club members are hoping to raise $1 million for the fight against breast cancer and in support of this universal cause.
