Why The Caldwell Night Rodeo Invites You to Wear Purple Tonight
In Idaho, there are a lot of rodeos to love, but the Caldwell Night Rodeo is one that definitely shouldn't be missed! And tonight is a special night, because it is Man Up Crusade night.
Caldwell Night Rodeo — where the cowboys are the stars! This rodeo is the hometown rodeo for Man Up Crusade, which is a nonprofit organization that raises domestic violence awareness at professional rodeo venues across the nation. Tonight will be a real chance to come together to raise awareness for domestic violence in the Treasure Valley.
How do we demonstrate this?
By wearing purple tonight at the rodeo.
In an interview with Sheriff Donahue of Canyon County, he explained how The Man Up Crusade is a nonprofit organization headed by himself and his wife, Jeanie, and how they partner with rodeo professionals all over the country to raise awareness and help change the next generation of children and how they view relationships.
Y’all, this event is going to be absolutely incredible. Join us tonight and make sure you wear purple!
According to their website, "CNR will once again support a “purple night” during Wednesday’s performance. Guests are encouraged to wear purple and take a stand against domestic violence. Education at an early age is paramount to ending the cycle of domestic violence. CNR encourages parents to bring their children (kids under 12 are admitted FREE with an adult on purple night) and teach them to “man up” against domestic violence."
Below are upcoming rodeos in the Treasure Valley through September.
