It’s been a crazy twenty days here in Houston, Texas and LLD is off yet again! First, we’d like to recap on all things #RODEOHOUSTON!
It’s a neat thing – the rodeo is; the southern hospitality is apparent throughout everything they do here. From an enormous amount of scholarships given to kids from various places, to a pink out night in support of breast cancer awareness, and even a whole night dedicated just to those who bravely fight on the front lines for our nation!
Released to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Website, over 13 millions dollars has been awarded in one calendar year. There are around 750 scholarships that are awarded to many deserving kids across the state of Texas.
Another cool that happened this year- Zac Brown and his wife shelly were one of four buyers of the grand champion market steer that sold for $330,000 on the last Saturday of the livestock show and rodeo. Zac is a member of the country music group, the Zac Brown Band, and was a member of FFA when he was younger.
Among all of the many cool things that we were able to witness throughout our time, this might just be the coolest! It’s truly amazing to watch so many people come together, put on great shows every single night, and give back so much to today’s youth.
LLD was able to meet so many new people; it was interesting to meet so many that come from all different walks of life! See you soon!
