Trail Riding Event Raises Money for St. Jude
Fort Western Stores sponsored the “Horse’n Around For St. Jude” trail riding event, October 2, 2010. The annual fall event brings together over a hundred riders and their horses to help raise money for a worthy cause. This year, riders and their horses were led through the Historic Rock Creek State Park near Fairbury, Nebraska. The ride was organized by the employees of Nustar LP in an effort to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Riders and their horses enjoyed a three-hour scenic ride across the prairie and through wooded areas along the creek. A $15 minimum donation was collected to participate and all money was donated to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The ride was followed by a meal and raffle where riders were eligible to win donated items including gift cards from Fort Western Stores. Riders also received drawstring tote bags, compliments of Fort Western Stores and Wrangler, along with Fort Western Stores koozies and $5 Fort Bucks which can be used at Fort Western retail stores or online, towards the purchase of western wear and more.
