Not Their First Rodeo: JCMF Pro Event Celebrates 25 Years at the Roundup
Looking for some “spur of the moment” excitement? A number of high profile rodeo events are happening on the Gulf Coast! Each has a unique story which we hope to follow and cover more deeply in the future: The Liz Cook Texas Super Ryde & Rodeo is an annual Creole trail ride. It rolls from all points, through East Texas, and culminates in a rodeo in Wharton, Texas, southwest of Houston. The exhilarating Mississippi Coast Annual Black Rodeo has earned its title as the “Baddest Show on Dirt!” And the JCMF Pro Rodeo in Robertsdale, Alabama (read below) is an awareness-raiser and fundraiser for a very important cause. – Editor
The Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation is celebrating 25 years of its primary fundraising event, the annual Professional Rodeo.
Proceeds from the JCMF Pro Rodeo event will aid the nonprofit organization‘s continued efforts. The group provides resources within local communities and schools to foster social and emotional well-being of the area’s youth.
For its commemorative year, this award-winning Professional Cowboy Association event will relocate to the Robertsdale Arena. The move will accommodate the anticipated larger crowds while continuing to provide attendees with a memorable rodeo experience. It will feature eight nightly events: bareback and saddle bronc riding, bull riding, and calf roping, barrel racing, and more.
Gates will open nightly at 5:30pm with the main rodeo action commencing at 8pm. Pre-rodeo festivities for children include face painting, play tattoos, a bounce house, inflatable obstacle course, and more.
The Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation is a non-profit organization established in memory of Jennifer Claire Moore, a 16-year-old high school student who tragically lost her life to suicide in 1997. It is dedicated to providing programs, services, and resources across Baldwin County communities. These offerings that support the social and emotional well-being of area youth when they need it most.
