The San Patricio County Riding and Roping Club will be hosting an event this weekend to help raise funds for the non-profit known as Western Wishes.

It is a national award-winning program that celebrates and grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

Visitors will be treated to two full days of rodeo events, from tie downs to calf roping and barrel racing. Other events include a silent auction, dance and plenty of barbecue.

The event takes place Saturday and Sunday, June 29-30, at the San Patricio County Fairgrounds in Sinton. Kiii-TV is a proud sponsor of the event.
