Get ready to gallop “Back at the Ranch” for the 2016 Gilbert Days Rodeo! The Gilbert Promotional Corporation (GPC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) and our mission is to preserve our western heritage by proudly hosting the Gilbert Days Rodeo.
This year the Gilbert Days Rodeo will be held at Welcome Home Ranch on Friday, November 11, 2016 at 7:00 p.m., Saturday, November 12, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, November 13, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. Galloping Soles is the GPC’s philanthropic program.
Galloping Soles was started in March 2012, and it has helped children and families by providing vouchers toward new shoes. The program is offered to school age children that reside within the Town of Gilbert city limits or attend a Gilbert District school. For example, if a school nurse sees a child on the playground or in the classroom who does not have proper fitting shoes or shoes that are falling apart, they can provide the child with a voucher to redeem towards a new pair of shoes.
This positively impacts the child’s physical and mental health. The Gilbert Days Rodeo would like to “Step It Up” and provide funding for many years to come in order to give back to the community through this charitable service program. However, currently, we do not have the funds to keep this program a foot and we are losing ground.
If the GPC receives donations or sponsorships, it will be able to make great strides by directly benefiting children and families. Kindly help us out and donate or sponsor the Gilbert Days Rodeo now!
