We had such a good first rodeo that we think we're going to jump back into the arena next year. Check back here in February 2019 for our next campaign.
The winner of the Street Glide is our corporate sponsor McDonald's! Thank you all for supporting our campaign.
The winner of this Disney raffle is Sally Laporga! Thank you all for your support.
Our 2018 Elks Rodeo Queen Candidate is Seyenna Cavazos. She is 18 years old and is a senior at St. Joseph High School. Her passions for saving lives and extending a helping hand to those in need are not only reflected by her support of our Home for Good SBC and Mission United programs, but they are also apparent in her future plans. After graduation (and after she becomes our 2018 Rodeo Queen!), she plans to attend Grand Canyon University, where she will major in Nursing.
She has been a part of Varsity Cheerleading and Varsity Softball while at St. Joseph, and she has been playing softball for thirteen years. She also practices Jiu Jitsu and has been doing so for the past ten years. She has made a name for herself on the central coast through these activities, and her family has a long history of living here. She is related to five previous Queen Candidates! She is close with her family and her community, and she is looking forward to this exciting campaign and to the positive impacts all of this fundraising will bring.

The kind of real and lasting change that benefits everyone is only possible when people from all walks of life are willing to roll up their sleeves and go where their time and talent is most needed.
