Calgary, AB – June 20, 2019 – For another year, RGL is proud to be a title sponsor at Cowtown Rodeo. The pro rodeo charitable event raised over $45,000 for the Karuna Girls College, and we hope this year is even better.
 
This charitable rodeo event features world-caliber ringside bull riding and is an exclusive professional bullfighting event. Held on July 5 at Girletz Ranch just north of Calgary, all proceeds from the event benefit the Karuna Girls college in Lumbini, Nepal. Apart from offering English, math, and science, the school provides basic life skills such as nutrition, family planning, agriculture, and environmental awareness.

The RGL team took home the winning prize for reigning tug of war champs.

Cowtown Rodeo began in 2015 as a vision by local Calgarians to raise awareness and pay forward the benefits of educating repressed teenage girls. The funds raised since the first year of the rodeo in four years ago have already helped educate over 250 girls at the Karuna Girls College. These empowered young leaders provide a stronger, socially responsible voice in a much healthier community.
 
For as little as $300, a full year’s tuition for a teenage girl who otherwise would not get the opportunity is paid for. Last year, funds raised from food and drinks, silent and live auction bids, and sponsorship donations helped to enable 250 repressed teenage girls to attend school and eight classrooms partially built to meet the growing demand of over 400 girls in future years.

This year’s goal of $50,000 will help facilitate an annual budget of $80,000 per year to fund teachers and school operations, completion of construction of the eight new classrooms, provide busing to more remote areas, and the purchase of a second bus to reach more remote girls.
 
The event will also feature silent and live auctions as well as live music by Lexi Strate, Tommy McCarthy, and Byron Eddy
