Our dear friend Michael Doughman left us today on June 9th, 2019. He passed away peacefully at his home in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, a place he so loved. He had been ill for 4 weeks and racked up a lot of medical debt before he passed. This fundraiser is now to help pay his final expenses and try to pay back those dear friends who helped him in his final days when his personal funds ran out. Any remaining funds once his final expenses are paid will be distributed to the Michael Doughman Scholarship Fund which was setup when he retired in 2018 to benefit LGBTQ high school seniors going on to college.

UPDATE 06/13/19: Michael's final expenses have been settled by private donors. Michael was the long time show director at the Round Up Saloon and we have no doubt he loved a good show. So we are proceeding with Saturday's benefit to raise funds which will go to the Scholarship Fund that was established in 2018 in his honor. Michael was very touched by the gesture and we know he loved that his legacy will live on by helping deserving LGBTQ youth achieve their dreams of higher education.

It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce our beloved Michael left us this morning June 9th, 2019. We will be using the funds now to help pay for his final expenses. If we raise more than his expenses the remainder will be distributed to the Michael Doughman Scholarship Fund which was established last year when he retired to benefit LGBTQ high school seniors going on to college.
