For the last four years, the Covington County Child Advocacy Center has hosted its Cowboys for Kids Rodeo at Hilltop Arena in Andalusia.

All proceeds from sponsorships, vendors, and spectators go back into the CAC to fund the services it provides to local children. On Friday, the rodeo committee gathered to receive the Professional Cowboy Association’s Humanitarian Award, given to the Cowboys for Kids Rodeo.

The last three years the CAC has contracted with Bo Campbell Rodeo Productions of Robertsdale, Alabama to bring the rodeo to town.

Will Campbell, co-owner of Bo Campbell Rodeo Productions, commented, “The Humanitarian Award is given annually to a rodeo that the PCA believes makes great contributions to charity and other philanthropic efforts within its community. It’s something that supports a good cause, and to do it all for these kids, there isn’t a cause much better than that. We at Bo Campbell Rodeo Productions are proud to partner with the Covington County CAC and are honored along with the local rodeo committee that the PCA chose the Cowboys for Kids Rodeo for the Humanitarian Award. It’s well deserved.”

“We are honored to receive this award and it’s a great testament to the hard work that so many people from around the community have invested in creating a better life for these kids,” added CAC Board Chairman Walt Merrell.
