“Cutting out Cancer” Rodeo helps raise funds for cancer research

Gundagai recently hosted a most successful campdraft rodeo event called “Cutting out cancer”, organised by local, Toni Hart, who is currently battling HER2 Breast Cancer.

Competitors and spectators were invited to wear pink to support the event, with $2 from every entry fee generously donated by the Gundagai Rodeo Club.

The day began with an exciting campdrafting competition, starting out with the Novice event, and followed by the Open and Maiden Drafts.

The last event for the day was the Ladies Draft feature event, the prize for which was a beautifully handcrafted pink sapphire pendant valued at $2,700, donated by the Jones Family and HD Smart Jewellers, Tumut.

A charity auction took place that night with some fantastic prizes going under the hammer, including services to a variety of quality stallions, all of which were donated by locals in the area looking to do their part for cancer research in Australia.

The event was hosted by The Gundagai Rodeo Committee, in support of Toni and her family and in total, it raised a very generous $14,050. Every dollar will go towards our fight against cancer, funding cutting edge-cancer research in Australia!

We are so grateful and extremely humbled for Toni and the Gundagai Rodeo Committee’s efforts on behalf of the Australian Cancer Research Foundation. We cannot thank them enough for their support and generosity.
