The Missouri Gay Rodeo Association (MGRA) is celebrating our 30th anniversary, 1986 - 2016.  We are a 501 (c) (3) corporation who produces The Show-Me State Rodeo each year during Labor Day weekend. We are an affiliated chapter of the International Gay Rodeo Association (IGRA) who sanctions the rodeo. We are an all VOLUNTEER organization.
MGRA is in a rebuilding year and the new board of directors is working diligently to produce the Show-Me State Rodeo in 2016.  It will be held at Lone Wolf Ranch Arena, on State Line Road, just south of Kansas City, near Cleveland, MO.
Funding is our biggest need and to accomplish that, we need all the help we can get!!!
Some Approximate Expenses are:
Stock Contract - $7000
Facility Rent - $4000
Event Trophy Buckles and Ribbons - $5000
Advertising and Marketing - $1200
Awards Banquet - $1200
Sanction fees, Insurance, Seat Tax - $1500
Ambulance and Medical Personnel - $1200
On site Veterinarian - $800

PLEASE donate what you can to help us.  It doesn't matter if it is $5 or $5000.  We need your help!!

Proceeds from the rodeo go to our Charity Partner, KC Passages. 

MGRA and our rodeo family will be forever THANKFUL to you for your support.
