2019 Elks Rodeo Queen Campaign

Welcome to our 2019 Elks Rodeo Queen Campaign 

 

This year, we were very excited to have participated in our second Elks Rodeo Queen Campaign and grateful to have raised $96,000!

With the help of Emily Sabedra, her Family and Friends, our Sponsors and Donors, the Elks Rodeo Queen Campaign funds will be used to support our Home for Good Santa Barbara County program.

Home for Good houses and provides services for Homeless Veterans.  This year will have eight studio units coming online for Veterans in December. We will be furnishing, decorating and completely outfitting those units as well as coordinating all of the services needed to assist individuals in their return to self-sustainability because we Live United and Fight for those who Fought for Us.

 

 

   

 

This year's United Way Elks Rodeo Queen Candidate is Emily Sabedra, a sophomore at St. Joseph High School. She enjoys cheer, swimming, and community service. 

The Elks Rodeo Queen campaign is an incredible fundraiser for non-profits in Santa Maria and the surrounding area. This year's participating organizations were: Kiwanis Club of Santa Maria, Kiwanis Club of Guadalupe, and VTC Enterprises. The work these organizations do is incredible, and we encourage all of our supporters to look into the great work they do.

The winner of the Queen Contest is the candidate who raises the most money for her organization. The highest ranking candidates receives substantial scholarships from Elks Recreation, and we helped our 2019 candidate, Emily Sabedra to obtain one. 

Last year, we raised over $60,000, thanks to Seyenna Cavazos, her family, and everyone who supported them and us throughout the campaign. This year, we exceeded our goal! $96,000!!

Elks Recreation runs this Queen Campaign each year, giving participating organizations a chance to fundraise and support our programs. It is an incredible opportunity, and we are so thankful that we get to be a part of it. The Rodeo Queen campaign this year raised over $700,000 combined! 

 

This is where you come in.

Become a Sponsor or contribute a Donation to support our efforts to raise money for our United Way programs and to win our upcoming candidate the scholarship she deserves. Stay tuned to find out who she will be.
