The success of our 2013 Hot Rodeo created a great opportunity to donate and show our support for some deserving organizations in the Riverside County. In total we were able to award over $11,000 to charities. These organizations included:
Friends of Roy’s Foundation – $2,500
Shelter From the Storm – $2,500
AIDS Assistance Program – $1,250 (plus $535 from GSGRA)
The LGBT Community Center of the Desert – $750
Heart 2 Heart Equine Rescue – $1,500
Palm Springs Leather Order of the Desert – $300
Palm Springs Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence – $500
City of Banning SOAR Program – $2,000
None of this would have been possible without the support of our association and our members, nor without our sponsors and volunteers. We could not have done it without you all!

We are pleased to announce that our Rodeo Director for 2014 will once again be Wrangler Brian. This was an easy decision for our board. Brian's commitment to our associate and our rodeo has helped grown an event that just keeps getting better. This will be Brian's second year as Rodeo Director for Hot Rodeo. He was Assistant Director for Hot Rodeo 2011, as well as for the Sacramento's Sierra Stampede in 2010.
Rodeo production meetings for 2014 will begin the first week of October.
