Fort Western Stores Helps Tornado Ravaged Town
On April 27, 2011 the towns of Gadsden and Southside, Alabama were devastatingly struck by a series of tornadoes. Fort Western Stores is helping this community by acting as a sponsor for the upcoming Taming The Tornado bull riding fundraiser in Attalla, Alabama on August 19 and 20, 2011.
Crystal House, a nurse at the local hospital and one of the event's organizers, knew several people who had suffered losses from the storms. She decided with her husband that they could use their rodeo company to help. From that decision arose the Taming The Tornado event.
House is a long time fan of Fort Western Stores and decided to reach out to see how we could help her cause. "I would love to have the people of my area share in my joy of buying from Fort Western," said House.
In support of the cause to help citizens affected by the storm, The Fort has sponsored a chute gate and donated Fort Western gift cards to be awarded to the top competitors at the rodeo.
Fort Western Stores offers a huge selection of western wear and decor at everyday low prices including cowboy hats, cowboy boots, work wear, saddles and tack.
