Redding Rodeo Auxiliary was founded in the 1950’s to be the helping hands for the Redding Rodeo Association. We are the gals behind the scenes aka the Ladies Behind the Redshirts.
Our role in Redding Rodeo is not limited to just helping the men’s group. We also help in the community a couple of ways!
Our Helping Hands committee anonymously helps those in need. Be it a fire, flood or just a rough patch when someone needs help with an electric bill or shoes for their kids, Helping Hands will be there to assist! And shhhh!! It’s always kept anonymous!!
The Auxiliary is also responsible for putting on Chicks n Chaps. It’s held annually on our Tough Enough to Wear Pink day (generally Friday) of Rodeo Week. Chicks n Chaps has raised thousands of dollars for local cancer non profits to help patients with day to day expenses… gas for the car, grocery money, maybe housekeeping while the patient is undergoing treatment. The money raised stays here in our great North State and the non profits we donate to are amazing in distributing the funds.
If you like the sounds of what we do, please reach out to an Auxiliary member!! We are always looking for helpers!! Our meetings are the 1st Wednesday of each month @ 6 pm at the Redding Rodeo clubhouse; except July and August… that’s time for family fun!
