The Thedford Bull Fest is back at the Thomas Co. Fairgrounds Friday the 27th and is bringing with is a ‘Sea of Blue'.
Johnny Klein productions and the Cowpoke Bar are again sponsoring the Thedford Bull Fest this month. The Bull Fest begins at 6:30 p.m. and tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the gate. They can also be purchased at various businesses in town and in the surrounding area.
This year, for the first time, in conjunction with the Bull Fest, will be the ‘Sandhill Sea of Blue'. Those coming to the Bull Fest are encouraged to wear blue in support of Warren Haumann, who is battling multiple myeloma and the countless others who have benefited from the Callahan Cancer Center in North Platte.
The concept of rodeos nights where everyone wears pink in support of those battling breast cancer were the inspiration for the ‘Sandhill Sea of Blue'.
"Cancer affects every one of us, whether we are personally battling it or know of a family member or friend," said a spokesperson for the event.
Warren and his family were recipients at an earlier benefit, which was a huge success. The donations collected during the Bull Fest will not only benefit Warren again, but more importantly, benefit the Callahan Cancer Center in North Platte where he and several of his friends have had or continue to receive treatments.
A family member of Warren's made t-shirts for the first benefit. We are encouraging everyone to wear those T-Shirts or another blue shirt and fill the grandstands with a ‘Sea of Blue'.
