Bulls, Boots & BBQ

Bulls, Boots & BBQ 2020 - Cancelled

This event, an old-fashioned “barn-raiser” to benefit our modern-day healthcare pioneers, includes a delicious BBQ dinner, live and silent auctions, mechanical bull-rides and old west photos.

Historically, a barn-raiser is a collective action in which a neighbor’s barn is built or rebuilt by members of their community. When you join our “barn-raiser” you collectively help us build up our community, and ensure that everyone has what they need to thrive and be healthy in our rural mountain towns.

We are sad to announce that Bulls, Boots & BBQ has been postponed until further notice.

Now more than ever, you know that the health of our community lies within the health of each of our neighbors. Your support helps us continue our work to ensure that we are all Healthier Together.

If you would like to make a donation to help offset our lost income from this event, please visit our donation page and select Bulls, Boots & BBQ in the donation category.

We thank our many sponsors, donors and guests that have made this event a success every year, and look forward to your continued support. Click here to see our 2019 Event Sponsors.
