Chicks n Chaps™ Women’s Rodeo Clinics is a 501(c)3 organization that raises money for breast cancer programs, research and patients in local communities, while teaching women about the sport of rodeo in a fun, ‘girls-day-out’ atmosphere.
Tucson Chicks n Chaps features a morning in the arena with cowboys and cowgirls presenting roping demonstrations and insider information about the seven events in a professional rodeo. The UA Rodeo Team also will support presentations.
An all-vounteer committee, co-chaired Eileen Geraghty, a Tucson Rodeo board member and breast cancer survivor, host the Chicks n Chaps event. “It’s a unique way to bring people together for breast cancer support,” Geraghty added. “With the rodeo as the backdrop, women can get together without walks, or finding sponsors, and have a day of learning about the sport of rodeo, networking and enjoying one of Tucson’s cultural signature events.”
The event includes brunch and an auction featuring items donated by local businesses. Participants will receive goodie bags and a Chicks n Chaps t-shirt.
Registration can be completed by downloading and filling out our registration form. Additional information is available at Facebook.com/TucsonChicksnChaps and on chicksnchapsaz.org.
Day of Event Registration begins at 8 a.m. at the arena gate, followed by the Clinics beginning at 8:30 a.m. Brunch will be held in the “Chick Pit,” an area in the Rodeo Museum designated specifically for event participants. Participants will enjoy the rodeo and are invited to join the dance immediately following.
