Western Wishes Benefit Event in Full Swing this Weekend

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

From barrel racing to calf roping and goat tapping, the San Patricio County Roping and Riding Club will be hosting a very special event this weekend.

It's an all-weekend fundraiser for Western Wishes, a national, award-winning program that celebrates and grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

"There's going to be some country swing going on, some music. You can shop, see kids rodeo," said John Harris, president of the San Patricio Riding Club. "You can dance if you want to dance. There's going to be some barbecue plates in the afternoon."

The event kicks off Saturday and runs through Sunday, and organizers said the event will be in full swing from 9 a.m.-5p.m. both days at the San Patricio County Fair Grounds.

Kiii-TV is a proud sponsor of the event.
