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 the 8th Annual Bulls, Boots & BBQ has been postponed for 2020 as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
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 seeing you in 2021. Click here to see our 2019 Event Sponsors.
