Kaw Valley Rodeo

The Kaw Valley Rodeo supported the Johnson Cancer Research Center with "pink" items at the Steak Fry and "Passing the Boot" each night at the rodeo. The Steak Fry featured a magnificent spread of salads and desserts in addition to the wonderful steaks and great commararderie during a silent and live auction.

Thank you to all that helped with the rodeo and to all the supporters!

The women's basketball team "passed the boot" the first night of the rodeo. A huge thank you to all of you!
Thanks to all the scientists that volunteered to help pass the boot on the subsequent nights. Friday night was cancelled due to weather but they still raised ~$6800.
