The Opportunity Foundation of Central Oregon has agreed to partner with the High Desert Stampede for the Elite Rodeo Athletes Elite Premier Tour in Redmond, Oregon on March 25 and March 26.
Most importantly, the High Desert Stampede and Elite Rodeo Athletes found a way to thank the Opportunity Foundation for their excellent work.
On March 26 at 5 p.m. there will be a pasture bingo fundraiser benefiting the Opportunity Foundation at the fairgrounds directly in front of the Bank of the Cascades Center. This fun and exciting event will bring Elite Rodeo Athletes, community members and businesses together with those served by the Opportunity Foundation. This community based inclusive event directly furthers the work and goals of the Opportunity Foundation. You won’t want to miss this event!
The strong qualities this non-profit organization possesses, makes the High Desert Stampede proud to announce their participation in the Elite Rodeo Athletes Tour. The Opportunity Foundation will be participating in several different capacities, some of which are: providing shuttle services from the parking lot to the front doors (donations accepted) before and after the rodeo performances, helping with barn and animal chores and assisting with setup and tear down.
The framework for the Opportunity Foundation was laid over fifty years ago by “typical cowboy” Walter Franks. By continuing Mr. Franks’ work, the Opportunity Foundation of Central Oregon has grown into a thriving nonprofit organization with over 200 supported persons, eight owned and operated residential homes, three thrift stores and a variety of employment programs and services. The Opportunity Foundation helps individuals with diverse abilities achieve a greater sense of fulfillment and inclusion through its work and educational programs. They envision a world where all people live, learn and work together.
The High Desert Stampede and the Opportunity Foundation are both excited about working together to make the Elite Rodeo Athletes Premier Tour one of the greatest rodeos in Central Oregon.
