Bull Bounty Needs Sponsors

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Special Olympics needs people to sponsor a bull as part of its second benefit at the Nile Stock Show and Rodeo.

The Bull Bounty teams up a bull rider with a sponsor at random. If the rider stays on the bull for more than eight seconds, the sponsor donates $400. If the bull bucks the rider off before that time, the sponsor donates $600.

Special Olympics provides athletic programs year round for children and adults with disabilities. Funds will go to help these athletes.

"Once you start working with the athletes, becoming a sponsor and meeting the athletes, there's no word describing the great joy you see in the athletes and how it just reaches out to your soul," said Dawn McKenny, Special Olympics Montana development director.

The organization hopes to get 12 sponsors in total. Each sponsor will get 2 tickets to the rodeo on October 17, marketing opportunities at the Nile, and a reception.

If you would like to be a sponsor, you can call 406-216-5327 or visit somt.org.
