Staff Writer

The Tenth Annual Ridin’ for Cash Bull Bash is back for 2019. The family-fun event will take place two nights this month on Friday and Saturday, February 15 and 16. Friday night will feature an all youth rough stock event with all participants under 14 years old, while Saturday night’s event will feature professional bull riding, a mutton bustin’ championship round and bull poker. Doors will open at 5 p.m. and performances will start at 7 p.m. There will be a charge for admission.
After the Saturday night event, there will be a dance at the Jaycee Barn featuring Texas musical artist Michael Carubelli. Proceeds from the event will go to benefit visually impaired children in our area.
The “Bull Bash” was conceived by Matt and Annie Miles, whose oldest son Laramie Cash Miles was born with Septo-Optic Nerve Dysplasia. A person with this condition has a minimized optic nerve which prohibits the transfer of information from his eyes to his brain to process, resulting in blindness. At two months old, Cash was also diagnosed with Pan-Hypopituitarism. This disease affects the pituitary gland, making it impossible for the body to produce basic hormones and steroids which are needed for the body to survive.
