The 22nd Annual Stirling Family Memorial Ranch Rodeo (SFMRR) will be held Sept. 14-15 at the Stanley County Fairgrounds in Fort Pierre, S.D. This is the first year this event has grown to two days.

The festivities start on Sept. 14 at 5 p.m. with a free-will BBQ, followed by the ranch rodeo and kids’ games at 6 p.m. The event includes calf branding, wild cow milking and range doctor/trailer loading.

On Sept. 15, the event continues at noon with sanctioned bronc riding and kids’ mutton busting. Entries and fees will be accepted until Sept. 6. A silent auction will be held on both days. This event is free and open to the public to attend.

The Stirling Family Memorial Ranch Rodeo has been providing financial assistance to individuals and their families fighting cancer for the past 21 years. For more than two decades, this event has been supported by the community and regional supporters which made it possible to assist 300 families fighting cancer. In 2018, the event raised $17,000 and helped more than 40 cancer warriors!

“We are honored to continue our commitment to families fighting cancer and our efforts remain stronger and more steadfast than ever,” stated Brett Stirling, vice president of SFMRR.

The Stirling Family Memorial Ranch Rodeo is unique in its philanthropic philosophy. All monies raised from the ranch rodeo go directly to cancer warriors who are fighting this deadly disease. The funds can be used for uninsured medical treatment costs, travel expenses to seek treatment, or whatever the family needs at the time they receive the gift.
