Sue, Sparx, Todd, and Alana at Big Buckle Ball
Jenny Harding, For TSM

The Big Buckle Ball was held Saturday night in the Community Building at Island Grove Park in Greeley. It is the official kickoff for the 95th Annual Greeley Stampede. About 600 people showed up to raise money for the Stampede Foundation.

I had the pleasure of hosting the event with Alana. The big surprise of the evening was when Miss Rodeo America, Katherine Merck, joined Miss Rodeo Colorado, Madelaine Mills, and Stampede Grand Marshals Gene and Julie Haffner on stage.

Thanks to my lovely wife, Jenny, for taking some wonderful pictures on Saturday night.
