K9s for Warriors to Benefit from Auctions, Fundraising

Charity fundraising is a big part of  Mandan Rodeo Days and activities to raise money for K9s for Warriors reach a peak on Sunday, July 3, at the rodeo’s Patriot Night performance. Mandan Rodeo Days is proud to support K9s for Warriors and their mission to “Give a new leash on life to a rescue dog and a military hero.”

One prize is a moonstone diamond pendant donated by Westley’s Jewelry, valued at approximately $2500. The other two prizes are a 45 Long Colt Henry rifle  and a 17 caliber Henry rifle, both donated by Double H Guns of Bismarck. Raffle tickets are available at the following locations: all Dakota Community Bank locations in the Bismarck/Mandan area, Country Soule on South 12th in Bismarck, Mandan Sporting Goods on Main Street in Mandan and Double H Guns on the corner of Washington and Bismarck Expressway in Bismarck. Rodeo committee members also sold raffle tickets at Buggies & Blues in Mandan and at the PBR in Bismarck. Last chance tickets will be on sale at the Mandan Rodeo in the charity booth under the grandstands.
