Horse'n Around for St. Jude Returns
Fort Western Stores sponsored the “Horse’n Around For St. Jude” trail ride, June 4, 2011. The Annual event brings together over a hundred participants and their horses to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Once again participants were led through the Historic Rock Creek State Park near Fairbury, Nebraska.
Riders and their horses enjoyed a three-hour scenic ride across the prairie and through wooded areas along the creek. A minimum donation of $15 was collected to participate and all proceeds were donated to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The ride was followed by a meal and tack 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.
